The Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center has been awarded four Telly Awards for educational videos on pediatric, pancreatic and breast cancers.
A pediatric cancer video called "I Have Cancer" received two of the Telly Awards highest honors, the Silver Telly, in the Education and Health and Wellness categories. The video features pediatric oncology patients and our experts who are dedicated to improving the cure rates for kids with cancer. The Telly Awards is the premier award honoring the finest film and video productions, groundbreaking web commercials, videos and films and outstanding local, reginonal, and cable TV commercials and programs.

A Bronze Telly in the education category was awarded for the Cancer Center’s video "The Pancreas Cancer Couples Retreat at Johns Hopkins." The couples retreat is for patients living with pancreas cancer and their partners and provides an opportunity to share, give hope and network with others facing the same challenges. It is designed to ease psychological distress for the patient and the spouse and facilitate interactions in an environment that is comfortable and conducive to open frank discussions about emotional impact of pancreas cancer on the patient, spouse and other family members.
