Free art exhibit at The Cancer Center at KCH

The Cancer Center at Kishwaukee Community Hospital is hosting Lilly Oncology On Canvas: Expressions of a Cancer Journey art competition and exhibition. Art will be on display at The Cancer Center from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The biennial art completion invites people from the United States and Puerto Rico 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. To date, more than 4,100 individuals touched by cancer have submitted artwork and narratives to Lilly Oncology On Canvas. Artwork from the competition is touring cancer centers, hospitals and patient advocacy events nationwide and in Puerto Rico.

Lilly Oncology On Canvas is presented by Lilly Oncology in partnership with the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship, which advocates for quality cancer care for all Americans and provides tools that empower people affected by cancer to advocate for themselves.
