Philip Kingsley is launching a charity collaboration to raise funds for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity in honour of its late eponymous founder.
The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity was a cause close to Philip’s heart due to his wife Joan’s experience with breast cancer. The renowned trichologist’s No Scent, No Colour range was one of the first product lines in the world developed specifically for patients undergoing radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
Throughout June, to mark Philip’s birthday, £2 from every purchase made online at philipkingsley.co.uk and philipkingsley.com will be donated to the charity. Meanwhile, the Philip Kingsley clinics in London and New York will donate £5 from each service and £2 from every product purchased.
The donations will help fund the groundbreaking research of consultant surgeon Mr Gerald Gui into genetic predisposition to breast cancer and better ways of treating it. A portion of the money raised will also fund research into improving post-mastectomy breast reconstruction techniques.
Joan Kingsley says: “In 2006 I was diagnosed with breast cancer which was successfully treated under the care of Mr Gerald Gui and Professor Paul Ellis. It was quite a shock for us and Philip and I felt very lucky to have a great team supporting us. From that time forward Philip made a personal commitment to support the charity through fundraising and annual donations. Philip held this charity close to his heart as do I and the family. It is our wish to continue Philip’s legacy.’’
