Is anyone ever prepared to deal with the diagnosis of a terminal illness? What do you do to prepare for the passing of someone you love? How do you help a loved one navigate through the maze of issues that surround dying? Can you actually help a person die with peace, comfort and dignity? Whether you are a patient, a caregiver, or a family member, the author has written this book with the hope that you will gain knowledge and strength from understanding how she, her family, and her mother made this journey together. The Journey Home is the true story of a woman who is full of life and in the prime of life and then suddenly and without warning is diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer. The narrative unfolds as she makes the difficult transition from vibrant life to end-of-life. This story is about walking alongside someone you love and providing the support and care they need to find peace and comfort with life before death and with death itself. With no real hope given at diagnosis, the book shows the reader through the eyes of a patient how it feels to get a terminal diagnosis. How do you deal with the diagnosis? What do you do when you find out you have a disease that is going to kill you quickly but you don't know exactly when or how? Would you travel to far away places, spend all your money, or would you stay at home with your family and friends and enjoy each moment together? As someone you love begins their end-of-life journey, there are many issues to deal with: the shock of the diagnosis; the disease and its complications; their needs and fears. There are also many questions you need to consider for yourself: How do you prepare yourself to lose your mother, father, or other loved one? How do you deal with the pressure of supporting the patient while maintaining your own life? How do you deal with your loved one's fear of death and your own fear of death? How do you prepare for their death? How do you recognize when death is near? How do you and your family members handle the grief that comes with death? This story covers all these topics and more. The author prays that you find her book helpful, even if you take away only one idea. She hopes that this book touches your soul as it touched hers to share it with you. Please note: A majority of the proceeds of this book will be donated in the name of The Charlene Von Hoffman Cancer Foundation which directly endows cancer research and cancer patients in need.

At the start of the summer, Jake and Taylor Wilder set out on the adventure of a lifetime. After seeing their mother loaded into an ambulance because of Bull, her terrifying boyfriend, the boys know they are no longer safe. So they go in search of their father, who has been living off the grid in Wyoming. After jumping trains, hitching a ride with a truck driver, and hiding in the luggage compartment of a tour bus, the boys finally find him in Grand Teton National Park. Just as the boys are getting used to their father’s lifestyle—and his “my way is the only way” attitude—they learn that their mother is still alive. But if the brothers don’t give back the money they took from Bull last year, she could be taken away from them…for good. Convinced that their father isn’t going to help, the Wilder boys set out on their own again. It’s a long way from Wyoming to Pittsburgh, and with winter approaching there will be new challenges. But they have to get back. Will the brothers be able to make it back to their mother before it’s too late?

The story of one man’s journey from his youth in suburban Chicago to an adult in spiritual India and a world of mystics, yogis, and gurus. Within this extraordinary memoir, Radhanath Swami weaves a colorful tapestry of adventure, mysticism, and love. Readers follow Richard Slavin from the suburbs of Chicago to the caves of the Himalayas as he transforms from young seeker to renowned spiritual guide. The Journey Home is an intimate account of the steps to self-awareness and also a penetrating glimpse into the heart of mystic traditions and the challenges that all souls must face on the road to inner harmony and a union with the Divine. Through near-death encounters, apprenticeships with advanced yogis, and years of travel along the pilgrim’s path, Radhanath Swami eventually reaches the inner sanctum of India’s mystic culture and finds the love he has been seeking. It is a tale told with rare candor, immersing the reader in a journey that is at once engaging, humorous, and heartwarming. Praise for The Journey Home “Here is an inspiring chapter of “our story” of spiritual pilgrimage to the East. It shows the inner journey of awakening in a fascinating and spellbinding way.” —Ram Dass, author, Be Here Now “He tells his story with remarkable honest—the temptations of the 1970s, his doubts, hopes, and disappointments, the culture shock, and the friendships found and lost . . . Add a zest of danger, suspense, and surprise, and Radhanath Swami’s story is a deep, genuine memoir that reads like a novel.” —Brigitte Sion, assistant professor of Religious Studies, New York University
