Oncology on Canvas®

Creative expression is more than just an outlet. It's a way for anyone affected by cancer to inspire hope.

Share your Story

For more than a decade, Lilly Oncology on Canvas (LOOC) has provided individuals affected by cancer an opportunity to share their stories through art and narrative. Since its founding in 2004 in partnership with the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship and Cancer Support Community, thousands of LOOC participants have been inspired to share their experience with countless others.

If you or someone you know has been affected by cancer, you have a story to tell – a story that can bring hope, inspiration, and courage to countless others who may find themselves overwhelmed by the challenges they face. You don’t have to be a professional artist to experience the power of creative expression. Share your story today.
