Patient Activities at Norfolk Center

Travelling Patient Art Exhibit: Oncology on Canvas

Every year, Norfolk Center for Cancer Care hosts the traveling exhibit, "Oncology on Canvas," presented by Eli Lilly in association with the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship. It features paintings and photographs, along with essays describing the art, written by patients and/or their families.

Launched in 2004, this program was conceived by Eli Lilly and Company as a way to honor the journey of those whose lives have been affected by cancer. The rich tapestry of emotions conveyed in these pieces of art endures and provides hope and inspiration to others.
