ABOUT RANDY'S BATTLE: A few months ago, veteran entertainment publicist Randy Alexander went to his doctor because of some stomach pain and diagnostic tests revealed that he had end-stage pancreatic cancer. Always a fighter, Randy dove right in with and a trusted team of medical professionals and--equally important--a warrior attitude to develop and activate a treatment plan. He started chemotherapy in November but did not react well to his first two treatments and unfortunately, spent two weeks in the hospital followed by two weeks in a rehab facility.
Randy returned home, but quickly took a turn for the worse. He kept his battle private and did his best to deal with the unfortunate circumstances the fates had dealt him. But, the medical bills started rolling in and his insurance only covers a fraction of the ever-mounting costs, and didn't address living expenses for him and his family since he was unable to work.
As such, please consider donating or sharing this campaign to help with their unexpected medical expenses and financial pressures. Every contribution goes directly to the Alexander family.
In case you aren’t familiar with Randy, his firm, Randex Communications , has spent more than two decades as the Philadelphia region’s premiere entertainment and lifestyle PR/marketing agency. His clients through the years have included the likes of “Saturday Night Live” icon Joe Piscopo, The Hooters, Disco Biscuits, The Amazing Kreskin and Deep Purple. Among his more recent clients were Oscar-winning composer Franke Previte, the popular series of Time-Life music cruises and pop music immortals Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff.
Randy has also devoted much time, effort and energy to such non-profit entities as the Philadelphia Music Alliance , which is the custodian of Philly’s monumental musical legacy, and the Asbury Park-based Light of Day Foundation , which is dedicated to Parkinson’s Disease education and research.
Randy lived in Marlton, NJ with his wife Randi (yes, it’s Randy + Randi). They have two children, Zoe (22) and Harrison (27).
