Ralph Lauren’s Commitment to Cancer Care

For nearly 30 years, Ralph Lauren has been committed to raising awareness in the fight against cancer. In the 1989, after his close friend and Washington Post Fashion editor Nina Hyde was diagnosed with breast cancer, Mr. Lauren made a commitment to focus his philanthropic efforts on improving care for this devastating disease by cofounding the Nina Hyde Center for Breast Cancer Research at the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center. In 1994 he led the fashion industry in its support of breast cancer research by designing the first target logo for the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Fashion Targets Breast Cancer initiative, which focuses on raising public awareness and funds for the breast cancer cause.

In 2003, the Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care was established in partnership with the nation’s leading cancer center, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, in New York City, to provide high-quality, compassionate cancer screening, diagnosis, and treatment to all regardless of personal circumstances. In
2014, Ralph Lauren Corporation partnered with The Royal Marsden, the largest and most comprehensive cancer center in Europe, to develop a world class breast cancer research facility. Together with the Duke of Cambridge, Ralph Lauren Corporation opened The Royal Marsden Ralph Lauren Centre for Breast Cancer Research in 2016.
