Cancer Survivor and Mom of Nine Offers Hope All Year Long

Over 100,000 people are expected to be diagnosed with colorectal cancer this year. Today, we celebrate the life and recovery of one colorectal cancer survivor.

Sheryl Holmes, author of Towdah: A Cancer Surivor's Song of Hope, now spends her time sharing joy, hope, strength and courage with others who face challenging circumstances. Her website is entitled Always a Song of Hope, and her joy is contagious to anyone who encounters her.

Sheryl Holmes is a daughter of the Most High King and desires to see His sparkle her life everyday.

She is a wife to a most steady and patient man. They have nine biological children together - 5 boys, 4 girls - 2 sets of twins within the bunch; she home educated her children for eighteen years!

Currently, she is a substitute teacher in the local public schools. Sheryl thinks it's the best when she can read, and cuddle, and dance, and sing, and create with colors and food and gardens. She enjoys words and delights to write them down in notes and lists and poems and letters. Ideas are her favorite!

Sheryl is a cancer survivor and Towdah: A Cancer Survivor's Song of Hope is her first book. She has also co-authored The Christmas Tree Treasure Hunt and has been published in Life Lessons from Moms and Life Lessons from Dads via Write Integrity Press. More than all of this, She loves the Lord Jesus Christ and believes He is the only one and true source of HOPE.

Born and raised in Massachusetts, Sheryl is a New England girl. She attended the University of
Massachusetts in Amherst Massachusetts and was awarded the Chancellor's Talent Award Scholarship and holds a BA in Dance. She obtained her MA in Dance Movement Therapy from Antioch New England College in Keene, New Hampshire.

Sheryl is an active member at Dwight Chapel's Christ Community Church in Belchertown, Massachusetts.
