RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- As breast cancer awareness month comes to a close, One Wake County mother is helping cancer patients conquer their diagnosis one crayon at a time.
"He said you have a tumor on your lung and a tumor on your chest," Sheena Spencer said. "The tumors identified as Hodgkin's Lymphoma which is a blood cancer."
When cancer came with a 1-2 punch. Spencer knew she had to fight back
"Once I made up in my mind that I was going to win this journey, nothing could stop me," Spencer said.
The Wake County mother pushed through chemotherapy and found calm in coloring
"During my journey, someone gifted me a coloring book and as I would color, it became very therapeutic for me. It was as if my reality didn't exist, and as I would color, I would use the same scriptures out of the Bible, and I would meditate on it as I would color and my mindset shift from a place of defeat to a place of victory," Spencer said.
That's how her book "Conqueror" was born. Every page is dedicated to a different type of cancer diagnosis, illustrates some of the silent struggles, and includes encouragement for each.
So while cancer may have started the fight, Conqueror is helping hundreds finish it.
