Date:5/29/2008

Winning Entries From Oncology on Canvas(SM) To Be On Exhibit at ASCO

INDIANAPOLIS, May 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- "This is Not a Dress Rehearsal," "More Than a Statistic," "Why Me?" The voices of people affected by cancer will be represented in art and narrative at an exhibit featuring selected winners of the 2006 Lilly Oncology on Canvas Expressions of a Cancer Journey Art Competition and Exhibition. The art will be on display in the Lilly booth at the 44th Annual American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Meeting in Chicago, May 30 - June 3, in time for National Cancer Survivors Day, June 1.

Eli Lilly and Company, in partnership with the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS), presents Oncology on Canvas as a way to pay tribute to the cancer journeys of all those affected by cancer. The program was launched in 2004 and has resulted in two competitions, nearly 2,500 pieces of art, and more than 600 exhibitions around the world. Oncology on Canvas is accepting entries from the U.S. and Puerto Rico for its third competition until July 15, 2008.

"What better way to honor those affected by cancer than by showcasing an inspiring collection of art at the world's premier oncology meeting, coinciding with National Cancer Survivors Day," said Ellen Stovall, president and chief executive officer of NCCS. ASCO attracts more than 30,000 oncology professionals around the world. Created in 1987, National Cancer Survivors Day was created to honor all those that have been affected by cancer.

"NCCS has always maintained that a person is a survivor from the moment they are diagnosed with cancer," added Ms. Stovall. "Oncology on Canvas puts survivorship in the spotlight, highlighting what it means to live with cancer, and providing hope and inspiration to all."

2008 Competition Still Accepting Entries

The 2008 competition invites U.S. and Puerto Rico residents who have been diagnosed with cancer, their health care providers, family members, friends and caregivers, to express visually, and in narrative, the many emotions and experiences that define the cancer journey.

"While ASCO spotlights the achievements of cancer researchers and leaders at the forefront of medical science, Oncology on Canvas reminds us of the power of the human spirit to move forward and heal," said Richard Gaynor, M.D., vice president, cancer research and global oncology platform leader for Lilly.

All entries for the 2008 competition must be received by the Art Director no later than July 15, 2008. Entries must be original works of art, presented in one of six different mediums: oil; watercolor; acrylic; photography; pastel; and mixed media (any other type of one-dimensional art). Submissions must be at least 12" x 12" and no larger than 17" x 26". There are three participant categories in the competition: person diagnosed with cancer; health care professional (e.g., doctor, nurse, pharmacist, lab technician, etc.); and family member, friend or caregiver.
