"I celebrated a birthday with a zero in it, and our family, ages 2 to 72, gathered at a house on a lake in the mountains for a week of chaotic fun," writes Carol Kuykendall of Boulder, Colorado. "The get-together was made more meaningful because of the memories of my last zero birthday, when my husband I were diagnosed with advanced cancers, which affected our whole family. Reflecting back over that decade, we can see how God held us in His hands, strengthening our faith as we trusted His promises. Since then, Lynn and I have found many opportunities to walk alongside others who are navigating the cancer journey. God's gifts of life and family, perspective and purpose, give us much to celebrate this year."
