The mural design.

Together with the American Association for Cancer Research, Fox Chase Cancer Center is proud to host the Hope Murals Project. Presented by Lilly Oncology, The Hope Murals Project selected Fox Chase Cancer Center as one of 10 sites across the U.S. and Puerto Rico. The murals will be created by cancer survivors, their caregivers, and the community. The hope mural you create, on average 10 feet by 20 feet, will live on after the event in Philadelphia to continue to inspire and empower those affected by cancer. They will bring the experience and art supplies-you bring the hope.

It only takes one person to create an inspirational piece of Lilly Oncology On Canvas art, but it takes four designers, more than 60 paintbrushes, up to 10 gallons of paint, and a whole community to transform that art into a giant Hope Mural—a permanent show of support in each city for those touched by cancer.
