John Boykin, a retired deputy sheriff and a loving father, has completed his new book “The Silent Storm”: a gripping true account of the author and his family’s journey with caring for a cancer-stricken daughter and continuing to attend to her needs throughout the years.

Author Boykin mirrors a compassionate heart and the unconditional love of a parent for his offspring especially during times of great crisis: “As time passed, we had gotten back into the routine of Carrie’s treatments. As time went on, the fear subsided, and we become more comfortable. We were now back spending our time in the hospital, and soon we began playing cards UNO, Scrabble, and other games to keep busy. Staying occupied seemed to help keep our minds off of the bad thoughts and motivated us to be happy and upbeat. Of course, with Carrie, she remained happy and upbeat, just taking all this in stride. As I watched my little girl, it occurred to me that what I witnessed in Carrie’s bravery and courage was, in fact, a lesson to me. I then knew that the Lord was showing us that we could handle this with his help. I knew that the chemotherapy medication—with all its possible bad side effects that had been explained to us—it was now evident that the very medicine we feared, we had now become dependent upon.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, John Boykin’s touching tale portrays a real-life event that began with the shock of hearing the doctor’s diagnosis to spending all that there is for a loved one’s medication and finally receiving the good news of remission.
