Lilly Oncology on Canvas Art Exhibit on display in the N.C. Cancer Hospital Lobby November 7-21, 2012

UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center is hosting the Lilly Oncology on Canvas Exhibition in the lobby of the N.C. Cancer Hospital.

From November 7-21, 2012, visitors will be able to see artwork from the 2010 competition currently touring hospitals, cancer centers and patient advocacy group events.

Ian Buchanan, MD, MPH, Associate Vice President for UNC Health Care Oncology Service Line, said, “We’re glad that our patients and families will have the chance to view this powerful exhibit. We hope they will draw hope and inspiration for their own cancer journey from the artwork.”

Presented by Lilly Oncology and the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS), the Lilly Oncology On Canvas Art Competition and Exhibition honors the journeys people face when confronted with a cancer diagnosis. Individuals diagnosed with any type of cancer, as well as their families, friends, caregivers and healthcare providers, are invited to express, through art and narrative, the life-affirming changes that give their cancer journeys meaning.

In 2004, Lilly Oncology created Lilly Oncology On Canvas to help people affected by cancer cope with the emotional side of the disease.

This biennial competition, presented by Lilly Oncology and the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS), invites people from the United States and Puerto Rico who were diagnosed with any type of cancer - as well as their families, friends, caregivers and healthcare providers - to express, through art and narrative, the life-affirming changes that give their cancer journeys meaning.
