Cancer Center Volunteer Receives Art Award

clientuploads/_photos/Kelli/Julie Miller2.pngJulie Miller, a volunteer in Feist-Weiller Cancer Center's Arts in Medicine program, has been named a national winner in the Lilly Oncology on Canvas competition for the second year. She has designated the $1,000 prize to support the art program for patients undergoing chemotherapy. 

About her artwork, Julie wrote:

I volunteer at a children’s cancer center on Mondays. When I come in, I often see these two boys sitting together as they receive their chemotherapy. It looks like they have been friends forever. However, chances are that their paths would have never crossed had it not been for cancer. What brought these two together is not what keeps them together. They play games, watch TV and hang out like they could do anywhere while all their medical issues fade into the background. It’s as if they have accepted where they are and have chosen to continue to go about the business of being kids. They draw strength from each other. I witness that every Monday.
