Children get simple joy from simple things. It is one of the great things about being a kid. Being able to get that simple joy in completing a simple task like coloring, even if only for a moment, is well worth the effort.
Cancer: Coloring as an adult is not going to directly affect cancer. How could it? However one of the big problems with cancer treatments is that they make you extremely ill, distressed and depressed.

Adult coloring can do that for you. We talked about how coloring is a “whole brain” process earlier. It is an easy activity, it doesn’t take mental gymnastics to accomplish some cool coloring as an adult, but it does take your full concentration.
