Lush launches ‘gold’ bath bomb campaign for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

We are excited to announce that cosmetics retailer, Lush is collaborating with us to help amplify our messages about childhood cancer and to raise much needed funds to invest in non-animal testing rhabdomyosarcoma research.
This is for Dexter. Today, we will also be launching Dexter’s Arc (Watch this space) and highlighting his story. Dexter’s family are the co-founders of Lush. Dexter passed away on 27th July 2022, having been diagnosed in December 2019. Lush have been touched by Dexter’s story and their support is in honour of Dexter and a collective desire that the story must change for children diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma.
We are so grateful to be working with Lush and Dexter’s family but more than anything we would rather that Dexter was here with his family living the life he deserved.
Lush turned gold on 23rd September 2022. Please visit their website:
