Oncology on Canvas was created in 2004 by Eli Lilly and Company as an international art competition open to women from around the world diagnosed with cancer, their families and friends, as well as healthcare professionals involved in their care, to express their struggles and successes in battling this disease through art. Lilly created the competition to recognize those women diagnosed with cancer who used art as a powerful emotional outlet to inspire others as a means of self-discovery and self-expression.
