For when I am tried and purified, I shall come forth as gold. These are the words that Ron Hamilton penned as he faced cancer which eventually took his eye. Ron and Shelly Hamilton had only been married three years when they received the news that Ron had cancer in his eye. Initially, the doctors speculated that his cancer could spread further into his brain, which would prohibit any surgical operations. Shelly had to come to grips with the reality that she may lose her husband after only three years of marriage. Thankfully, God had a different plan for Ron and Shelly. The doctors removed Ron’s eye and through that trial was the birth of the Patch the Pirate adventures.
