Welcome to this website, which is designed to keep you up to date on the progress of Chris Hennessyís upcoming memoir book, Touched by Hannah. Touched by Hannah is an original story based upon true events that Chris and his family lived through in 2009.

Touched By Hannah has already been featured on NBC TV News, KGO-810 Radio San Francisco, as well and many other NEWS & PRESS stories.

The trailer film Chris produced (see top of Home Page) to promote Touched by Hannah recently won an award at the IndieFest Global Film Competition.

Touched by Hannah will be unlike any book youíve read.

In June of 2009 Chris was diagnosed with an aggressive prostate cancer. On August 3, 2009 he endured radical prostatectomy cancer surgery at Stanford Hospital, Stanford, CA. Severe complications developed, and Chris almost died three days after surgery.

Less than a month passed when Chrisí daughter Hannah, due December 7, 2009, was born September 1, 2009 at Good Samaritan Hospital, San Jose CA. Hannah was classified as a micro-preemie. She weighed a mere 1 lb. 9 oz.

For months Hannah and Chris fought for their lives. Chris was still there at Hannahís incubator late into every night, long after the other parents had left.

Chris and his wife Betsy wondered if they'd ever be able to bring Hannah home. Even if they did, the doctors said the odds were against Hannah having a normal, healthy life.

"Suspense, humor, babies, cancer and triumph! It's terrific!"

Touched by Hannah needs your help!


Chris has finished writing Touched by Hannah! Heís put hundreds of hours of effort and focus into his memoir book. But thereís still plenty of work to be done.

The final step is to hire an editor to help refine and make Chrisí book shine. This extra effort is what's needed to help Touched by Hannah get published.

Working with an experienced editor is a lot of work. Itís also very expensive to have a book of 300 pages professionally edited.

Chris is looking to raise $9500 to get Touched by Hannah edited and finished. Please find the Donate button above. Your generosity and help is very much appreciated!
