Lilly Canada, the Canadian Association of Psychosocial Oncology (“CAPO”) and the Canadian Cancer Survivor Network (“CCSN”) invite Canadians touched by cancer to submit their artwork and narrative to Lilly Oncology On Canvas® Canada. Lilly Oncology on Canvas Canada is a program to support the collection and exhibition of original artwork and narratives created by Canadian individuals diagnosed with any type of cancer, as well as their families, friends, caregivers and healthcare providers. The collected works are then shared online, in various oncology-related publications and in exhibitions at cancer centres across the country.
In thanks for each submission, Lilly Canada will make a donation in the participant’s honour to the cancer-related charity of their choice. Each year, a total of $5000 in donations will be shared proportionately, according to the number of submissions received, among the charities identified in each submission package.
About the Canadian Association of Psychosocial Oncology
The Canadian Association of Psychosocial Oncology (CAPO) is a national registered charity that promotes excellence in psychosocial care for people with cancer and their families throughout the cancer experience—from diagnosis to treatment to survivorship or end of life. CAPO works to transform cancer care wherever it is delivered—in hospital, in the community and in hospices.
CAPO is dedicated to empowering health care professionals to transform the cancer experience and improve the quality of life for millions of Canadians living with cancer through understanding, treatment and study of the social, psychological, emotional, spiritual and quality-of-life aspects of cancer.

About the Canadian Cancer Survivor Network
The Canadian Cancer Survivor Network (CCSN) works to connect Canada’s almost 1 million cancer survivors with decision makers and the wider community to engage in discussion and to act on evidence-based best practices to alleviate the medical, emotional, financial and social costs of cancer. CCSN undertakes and encourages research on ways to overcome barriers to optimal cancer care and follow-up for survivors in Canada, and to grow and strengthen the survivor voice in health policy decisions.
