11/25/2013

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – As colors come alive and stories are told, it’s hard not to notice the theme of “hope” in the Lilly Oncology on Canvas collection currently on display in Chambersburg.

As one mixed media piece entitled “Enduring Strength” put it: “H-O-P-E, four ordinary letters, when placed in a certain order, are not ordinary at all.”

Artwork from the Lilly Oncology on Canvas competition is touring hospitals, cancer centers, and patient advocacy group events.

The artwork is on display now until Dec. 6 outside the Grove Cancer Center in Summit Health Center – Building 1 lobby, 755 Norland Ave., Chambersburg. The lobby is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The 20 pieces are presented by the Lilly Oncology and the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship allowing cancer patients as well as loved ones, caregivers and healthcare providers to express their journeys through art and narrative.

“It’s an honor to be selected as one of the many exhibition sites,” said Janet Daniels, director of Oncology for Summit Health.

“To see the artwork and then read the narrative, it adds depth and meaning to the journey of our own patients and everyone touched by cancer.”
