Dancing in the Rain
Cancer is the sudden storm that shatters the summer day.
The traveler, caught unawares, must set aside all her plans.
The pelting rain stings her skin like hundreds of tiny needles.
The downpour drenches her clothes, which drape heavily over her frame,
and chill her to the bone.
Surrounded by grayness and misery, she grows weary and cries out,
“Will this storm never end?
Will the sun ever shine again?”
from deep within,
comes a whisper.
She smiles as she recognizes her old friend.
It is Hope,
which takes the form of a child
then grabs her hand
and gleefully teaches her
how to dance in the rain.
The mixed media artwork on the cover is entitled “Dancing in the Rain". It won Best Mixed Media by a Healthcare Professional in the 2012 Lilly Oncology On Canvas: Expressions of a Cancer Journey Art Competition and Exhibition.
Oncology On Canvas SM; is an art competition and exhibition that honours the journeys people face when confronted with a cancer diagnosis. This biennial competition invites individuals diagnosed with any type of cancer—as well as their families, friends, caregivers and healthcare providers —to express through art and narrative, the life-affirming changes that give their cancer journeys meaning.
Oncology On Canvas was started in 2004 by Eli Lilly and Company to help address a need in cancer care that goes beyond medicine—to help those affected by cancer cope with the emotional toll of the disease.
Artwork from the 2012 competition is touring cancer centres, hospitals and patient advocacy group events.
Current Oncology is committed to the Canadian oncology community as well as oncology communities around the world. We are pleased to help raise awareness of this great program created by Lilly. Current Oncology will be selecting a new artwork for each cover from Oncology On Canvas competitions.
