A boutique store owner in Mt. Juliet is closing up shop to focus on her battle with stage three liver cancer. As she fights for her life, customers are showing their support.

Clementine's Women's Boutique on Lebanon Road opened in October 2014.

Shortly after, doctors diagnosed owner Heather Sullivan with stage three breast cancer causing the community to show its love.

After going into remission, she was later diagnosed with liver cancer.

Sullivan said through prayer groups she has been encouraged by the community and wants to also encourage others who may be in her shoes to never give up.

"Cancer is not a death sentence, and God's got me through here and He saved my life. One way or the other, He's going to heal me," Sullivan said.

Throughout July, items are on sale as she looks to spend more time with her 5-year-old son and family.

As she fights, Sullivan pointed to her Promise Cross tattoo that she said represents the Bible verse John 3:16. Another message about love.

Her message for those fighting the same fight -- don't ever give up.

Clementine's Women's Boutique is opened Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
