This program supports The Royal Marsden, a world-leading cancer research centre and hospital in London. All profits from this exhibition will benefit the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity’s mission to cure Hodgkin’s Lymphoma for young people – supporting an institution where Taylor himself was treated for lymphoma as a young man. The exhibition’s title is inspired by the title of Sebastian Faulks’ book of the same name, evoking a symbol of hope and resilience in the face of mortality.
The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity raises money solely to support The Royal Marsden, a cancer hospital which opened its doors in 1851. It is a centre of excellence with an international reputation for groundbreaking research and pioneering the very latest in cancer treatments and technologies, as well as specialising in cancer diagnosis and education. Their mission is to make national and global contributions to cancer research and treatment.
