Life Becomes Art: Cancer Survivor Awarded Top Prize in 2010 Oncology On Canvas(SM) Art Competition
Date:10/20/2010

INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Following her lung cancer diagnosis, a woman who had spent nearly 30 years in nursing felt as if her life had been "cut up, rearranged and become a different picture."  An amateur artist, Annette Zalewski, of Peoria, Ariz., sought to express her cancer journey on canvas by using a cut-up painting technique for the first time.  Her mixed media entry, "Wild Water," took first prize among the more than 600 submissions to the fourth biennial Oncology On Canvas: Expressions of a Cancer Journey Art Competition and Exhibition.  

The 2010 competition's 24 winning entries were announced tonight at an awards presentation held at historic Union Station in Washington, D.C.  Lilly Oncology On Canvas is presented by Lilly Oncology and the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS).  The biennial competition invites residents of the United States and Puerto Rico who have been touched by cancer – patients, family members, friends, caregivers and healthcare providers – to express, through art and narrative, the life-affirming changes that give their cancer journeys meaning.  Winners' prizes consist of donations made in their name to the cancer-related charities of their choice.  Since Lilly created the competition in 2004, more than 3,600 individuals have submitted artwork and narratives.
