About the Book

Hannah Joya didn’t have a childhood like many, with a Dad who was paralyzed, growing up was anything but normal. But being normal wasn’t a goal for Hannah; embracing her relationship with her Father was. When her hero took his last breath, she promised her Dad that his pain would not go without purpose. On her journey of healing and self-discovery, Hannah dives into the importance of hope, faith, the power of choice and the power of God.
In an awe-inspiring, true-life story about a Daughter’s love for her Father, you will discover that amidst the struggles of grief and hardship, lies true purpose that only the rough waters of transformation can unveil. This book takes you through twenty-seven years of overcoming obstacles, the resounding dedication of family, and the true meaning of unconditional love.

“Candid, personal, loving, forgiving, sobering, and humbling. Never Goodbye #GirlDad, a beautifully-written memoir and a great testament to faith. One of the most inspiring books I’ve ever read.”

-Dr. Max Soliguen

About the Author

Hannah Joya, born and raised in sunny San Diego, California, made a promise to tell the world about her Father’s life story. In 2018 her Dad’s life was cut short after his battle with GBS-CIDP (Guillain Barre Syndrome-Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy), a chronic and progressive condition where the body essentially attacks itself, causing permanent nerve damage over time. At the age of twenty-nine, her dreams finally became a reality. Being able to tell the story about her Father’s perseverance, his mentality, his can-do and will-do attitude and his fight until the very end, has always been close to her heart.
She was a firsthand witness to all the struggles and joy of her Father’s journey. There is no doubt that Hannah’s support system comes from the family that surrounds her; their strength fuels her strength and continues to be a driving factor in her life. Her family once organized the first 5K Run to support the GBS-CIDP foundation held in San Diego and ended up raising enough funds to exceed any set expectations and help fuel further research into this debilitating disease.

Hannah lived in a world where the only vision of her Father she had ever known was of him confined to a wheelchair. She never had the privilege of seeing him walk, run, swim or dance, but that didn’t stop her from living life to the fullest for her father and eventually for herself. Her passion for helping others transpired into various volunteer opportunities all over the San Diego area. She joined a peace team in 2017 with Saddleback Church to assist in bringing relief to hurricane Harvey victims and worked with several outreach programs that focused on serving the homeless community. She also volunteered at numerous elder and assisted living communities alongside her Mom who is the community ambassador of the Assisted Living Ministry. Bringing joy to people who often times feel they have been forgotten. Her active engagement within her church has led to successful mission trips to orphanages in Mexico and she plans to continue to help those in need in any way she can.

Hannah is currently a model and an actress. She was Miss North County San Diego in 2016 and has been featured in numerous campaigns for name brand beauty/clothing lines along with nationwide commercials. Having received a degree in respiratory therapy, she chose a career path as a marketing coordinator and works at one of the top hospitals in San Diego County. Today, Hannah resides in San Diego to be close to family and friends where her inspiration originated.

Her true source of happiness is to inspire those around her and help them cope with pain, loss, and heartache. In helping people understand that behind sorrow lies purpose and finding hope in hopeless moments. Her mission is to keep her Dad’s legacy alive and with this book, she plans to do just that.
