As part of the Lilly Oncology On Canvas Art Competition, Lilly Oncology and the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship created the Ellen Stovall Award in honor of Ellen Stovall, a tireless advocate for cancer survivors and former president and CEO of NCCS. The award recognizes those who use their art and/or celebrity to be, like Ms. Stovall, “a true champion and advocate for cancer survivorship.”
Giuliana Rancic, E! News co-anchor and co-host of The Fashion Police. Ms. Rancic has shared each step of her cancer journey with the public, from her diagnosis of early-stage breast cancer to her decision to undergo a double lumpectomy and then a double mastectomy.
“Giuliana Rancic has served as a courageous advocate for early detection, providing millions of viewers with a window into her journey,” said Shelley Fuld Nasso, CEO of NCCS. “She serves as an inspiration to us all, which is why Lilly Oncology and NCCS are proud to present her with this year’s Ellen Stovall Award.”
“I am honored to be the recipient of the 2014 Ellen Stovall Award and part of the 10th anniversary celebration of the Lilly Oncology On Canvas Art Competition,” said Ms. Rancic. “I accept this award today on behalf of everyone living with, through and beyond a cancer journey, as well as those who love, care and advocate for them.” ■
