20 Dec A ‘man of steel’ looks to his last Christmas
JJ Hanson’s legacy is a witness of courage and strength in the face of terminal illness and the false compassion of assisted suicide
While we are celebrating Advent, some might say JJ Hanson and his family are experiencing something of a Lent.
Hanson is a veteran Marine, husband and father of two boys. He’s also a terminally ill cancer patient living his last days at his parents’ home in Yulan, New York.
Three years ago, Hanson was diagnosed with glioblastoma, one of the most aggressive cancerous tumors one can get.
