Michael and Gina Spehn both suffered the loss of a spouse to cancer, but their stories turned from grief to hope. Gina and her first husband, Matt, looked forward to celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary. But Matt’s diagnosis of cancer at age 33 turned their lives upside down. Then Michael tells of Cathy, whose severe headaches led them to the diagnosis of a brain tumor. But God can create beauty from ashes. Michael and Gina tell of the marvelous way God crossed their paths each with the other in order to build a new family of seven.
Michael and Gina Spehn are co-authors of The Color of Rain, a New York Times Bestselling memoir, which has also been adapted for the screen by Hallmark. Joined together by the loss of their spouses, Michael and Gina co-founded the New Day Foundation for Families, which provides financial and emotional resources for families who have been affected by cancer.
They have been featured on The Today Show, FoxNews, Huckabee, ABC World News, and several other national and local media outlets. They are privileged to share their story as national speakers and as hosts of a weekly talk radio show in Detroit called Your Family Matters. Michael and Gina, along with their five children make their home in Michigan.
