Jack Pardee was first diagnosed with cancer in 1964.  He was diagnosed

with malignant melanoma.  On his April 19, 1969, his 33rd birthday, he was

happy to receive news that he was officially cured.  He said, "There is no cure

until five years have gone by.  I was very fortunate they caught it when it was

still in a state of isolated profusion."  He had surgery on his upper right arm

to remove a mole the size of a dime.  He was then checked every six months

to make sure it did not return.
