In 1998 Ralph was diagnosed with melanoma after relative noticed a spot on his skin. There was a biopsy and then he was scheduled for surgery with a plastic surgeon. The surgeon removed a large chunk of skin from the base of his neck, only to realize a second surgery was required to completely remove it. Ralph is not one to be out in the sun, however as a child and teen – “sunburns where and annual event”.
