Philip Kingsley wasn’t just a legend within the world of hair care, he was also a generous patron of many charities, and The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity was one of those closest to his heart. To celebrate our founder and mark his birthday in June, we will once again be raising funds for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, to fund vital research into breast cancer.
This year is extra special as it marks the fifth anniversary of the campaign, which has taken place each June since 2017. To date, Philip Kingsley Products Ltd has raised more than £40,000 for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.
The charity raises money solely to support The Royal Marsden, a world-leading cancer centre. They ensure their nurses, doctors and research teams can provide the very best care and develop life-saving treatments, which are used across the UK and the world.
The donations raised through this campaign will be supporting breast cancer research led by Mr Gerald Gui, Consultant Breast Surgeon at The Royal Marsden.
Mr Gui’s research considers genetic predisposition to breast cancer and how this influences treatment, as well as early diagnosis of breast cancer and innovations in diagnoses. His interests also concern the improvement of breast reconstruction techniques in women who require a mastectomy following breast cancer.
As a leading authority on breast cancer treatment and research, Mr Gui is on the trial committees of many national and international studies. Your support ensures that breast cancer patients will continue to benefit from the latest research and developments in surgery — not just at The Royal Marsden — but across the UK and the world.
Speaking about the charity partnership, Mr Gui said: "We are grateful for Philip Kingsley’s generous support, that enables us to continue to expand our understanding of breast cancer and improve the clinical service we offer our patients”.
Over the past 10 years, The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity has provided £66 million to support ground-breaking cancer research work at the hospital. Next year, the hospital plans to open the Oak Cancer Centre at its Sutton site. This new, state-of-the-art facility, funded by The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, will bring together 400 researchers alongside patients and clinicians, helping to accelerate progress for the benefit of patients both at The Royal Marsden and worldwide.
“We’re so grateful to have the support of Philip Kingsley Products Ltd for the fifth year running”, Antonia Dalmahoy, Managing Director of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, said. “Philip Kingsley’s legacy and the money raised from this annual campaign is supporting pioneering and innovative research, improving the lives of more people affected by breast cancer. On behalf of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, thank you to Philip Kingsley Products Ltd and everyone supporting the campaign this year.”
