ATLANTA — A resolution honoring the life and memory of Dr. Thomas Seay, was passed by the Georgia Senate, Jan. 25.

Seay practiced medical oncology for 25 years and was president and managing partner of Atlanta Cancer Care. He saw patients at ACC’s Cumming and Perimeter locations. Seay died unexpectedly Dec. 26, 2015.

Senate Resolution 793 was introduced by Sen. Renee Unterman, R-Buford, who read the resolution on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Feb. 9.

Seay “was a person of magnanimous strengths with an unimpeachable reputation 21 for integrity, intelligence, fairness, and kindness, and by the example he made of his life, he 22 made this world a better place in which to live,” according to the resolution.

Seay devoted his life to the care of cancer patients and to the advancement of scientific research in oncology, insuring that patients throughout Georgia have access to clinical trials. He was the principal investigator for the Atlanta Regional Community Clinical Oncology Program. He served as chairman of the board of directors of the Georgia Center for Oncology Research and Education, and he was instrumental in the development of the Clinical Research Network in Georgia, which is focused on the development of an integrated system of cancer care including academic and community centers.

Seay is survived by his wife, Cindy, and her daughter, Alex, who were both on hand for the reading of the resolution.
