At Lilly, we are dedicated to developing and delivering innovative medicines that will make a meaningful difference to cancer patients. For us, this means putting an intense focus on the latest scientific advances and collaborating with doctors, other researchers, advocates and payers to ensure our medicines bring value to people living with cancer.
People living with cancer are at the centre of what we do. We believe healthcare makes a difference only when it improves peoples' lives. Whether it's treating rare tumor types, leveraging precision medicine, continuing the study of immuno-oncology or discovering new ways to advance existing treatments, we're dedicated to making even greater differences in the lives of people living with cancer.
Breast Cancer Now's Service Pledge
Lilly is proud to be a 2022/2023 sponsor of Breast Cancer Now’s Service Pledge, which brings patients, healthcare professionals and Cancer Alliances together to work in partnership to design and deliver patient-centred improvements, for everybody’s experience of breast cancer.
To date, over 120 breast cancer services across the UK have worked with patients to develop their local Service Pledge, delivering over 400 improvements for patients in the past 5 years 1 . At Lilly, we are committed to better understanding the experiences of patients and their loved ones, and to supporting projects, like the Service Pledge, that improve their treatment and care.
Improving Screening for Breast and Cervical Cancer in Kenya
As part of our Global Health programme, Lilly provides community health screenings through AMPATH, Lilly’s global health partner in Kenya. Through product and financial donations, Lilly and the Lilly Foundation support the AMPATH consortium, including AMPATH’s oncology center and mobile screening program for breast and cervical cancer. Pastor, former nurse, mother and cancer warrior who supports others on their journey – Nancy Odari is all of these and more. “I want to encourage people to know that having cancer is not the end of life. It’s a new start of life”. Today, Nancy helps others get screening for early detection. “In every life, you know there’s a purpose for it.”
