CHERYL M. HUGHEY
Author of the book
"There I Sat In Silence"
The inspiration for the book came from several sources. She is a survivor of domestic violence, rape, and sexual assault. She also grieved the death of a dear friend at the hand of her abuser, and the brutal rape and murder of her daughter's nine-year-old friend." Cheryl witnessed first hand; the lack of resources available to victims of abuse.
Now she is a voice, that's letting victims know, they can rise up from silence!!!! And she, along with her husband, Terry Hughey, is also assisting them in finding the resources to do so.
TERRY B. HUGHEY
