On 14 October 2015 The Organic Pharmacy hosted a pink cocktail reception event at the flagship, High Street Kensington store. The event, attended by Miss England 2015, Natasha Hemmings, etiquette expert, Liz Brewer and other private sector guests and philanthropists was held in celebration and support of the Life After Breast Cancer Fund.
Life After Breast Cancer Fund an initiative recently launched by the medical research charity, Restoration of Appearance and Function Trust (RAFT) has set a three year focus to raise £2million to fund critical research into breast reconstruction as a way to improve outcomes for women post-mastectomy.
During this month’s Breast Cancer Awareness appeal, The Organic Pharmacy has pledged to donate £2 from every sale of its Rose Body Lotion sold within the UK and US stores.
At the event, Margo Marrone, long-time supporter of RAFT and the Life After Breast Cancer Fund, encouraged further support from guests by announcing that a percentage from all Organic Pharmacy products sold in store that night would be donated in aid of Life After Breast Cancer Fund.
Leonor Stjepic, Chief Executive of RAFT commented, “Life After Breast Cancer was created to provide real solutions to real needs. The mastectomy process is fraught with difficulties, which create long-term pain and scarring. We wanted to do something that would allow women not to have to go through more trauma after already experiencing the trauma of fighting breast cancer. Often women that undergo cancer treatment are unaware of what to do or where to turn, we want to do something that will help. Working with The Organic Pharmacy means that products used to treat scars left over from a mastectomy, can be fragrant as well as support recovery and allow these women to regain their confidence and self-esteem.”
