This 30-second television spot features b-roll of cancer patients from past Ellis Medicine oncology campaigns and a voiceover that describes Ellis Medicine “on the front line, fighitng cancer care in our community.” It then invites viewers to visit the Ellis website to watch their stories in long-form web videos.

“Working with real patients, especially when dealing with cancer, is always a challenge because of its recurrence,” said Mark Shipley, President and Chief Strategic Officer of Smith & Jones, “but it’s always rewarding and humbling. This award is dedicated to all of the oncology patients at Ellis, and their families, who have shown incredible strength and courage during a difficult time.”

The purpose of this TV spot was to drive viewers to the Ellis Medicine oncology landing page, One2One Conversations. On this page, people can view candid, unscripted interviews with cancer survivors, physicians, and read material to learn more about the cancer care available at the hospital. The 30-second spot appeared on major network and cable advertising.
