Although he'd been writing professionally for more than 25 years, it was a family tragedy that propelled Joseph M. Hanneman into writing his first book. Helping care for his father during three years of illness provided the motivation and story behind The Journey Home: My Father's Story of Cancer, Faith and Life-Changing Miracles.

Many things along his father's final journey hinted that this was a story meant to be shared. But it was an encounter with a Catholic nun at a hospice center that convinced Hanneman the time had come to write this story.

Prior to to writing The Journey Home in 2009 and 2010, Hanneman spent his entire career in writing and communications jobs. After eight years as a newspaper reporter in Madison and Racine, Wis., he

Five Years & A Lifetime of Memories

[image error] Grieving the death of a loved one is a long process. Each of the “firsts” after they die brings a different reaction. Each birthday, holiday and death anniversary has its own emotions and challenges. It has been more than five years since Dad left us. I let the anniversary (April 14) pass without writing about it. I guess I’ve had a delayed reaction.

“This is the story of how Dad lived with his lung cancer. But it is much more. Through his illness and the miracles we experienced, I came to see that Dad's was not just a journey. It was a journey home. Home to God. ”
Joseph M. Hanneman, The Journey Home: My Father's Story of Cancer, Faith and Life-Changing Miracles

“PRAISE FOR 'THE JOURNEY HOME'
Many saints are known and praised by all. We pray to them in litanies and celebrate their feast days. But the vast majority of holy men and women live heroic lives quietly before God.

Loyal to family, lovers of God, servants in the Church, these unsung saints live everyday life as an example for us. David Hanneman is one such man. His story is exemplary and should be told to the world. He not only lived a noble life, but also suffered with heroism and grace as he passed into glory.

This is a story to encourage and bless us all. We are thankful to Joseph Hanneman for sharing his father and making his story known to us who need such examples to encourage us as we face the difficulties and challenges of life.”
Stephen K. Ray

“Unless there is a Good Friday in your life, there can be no Easter Sunday.”
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
