From his daughters:
Dad never felt sorry for himself when he was diagnosed almost 15 years ago with melanoma, he went through multiple surgeries, chemo and radiation therapies and fought incredibly hard and never complained! He lived a long, happy, prosperous, and fulfilling life, but always felt sad for and had a special place in his heart for the young children who would endure the pain he did and some not getting to live the lives they were meant to live. Since the doctors at The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania where the ones who continued to give him chances at life, his family would like to pass that along to other families.
