Yes to Life
Who they are
Yes to Life empower people with cancer to make informed decisions about their cancer care options.
For more than a decade, they have provided evidence-based information to those in need. They are proud to have helped more than a 1,000 people and will continue doing everything they can to support even more. Their singular focus on supporting people with cancer with objective, impartial information means they do not sell drugs, treatments or therapies.
What they do
They provide information to guide people with cancer through the confusing options for care and lifestyle choices. Their aim is to help them make informed decisions. They simplify the complex and facilitate access to expert knowledge.
They quickly provide simple, straightforward information about what people with cancer can do right now to start making a positive difference to their wellbeing.
How they do it
They offer individual support through our helpline and website, and information through blogs and publications, radio broadcasts, workshops and conferences.
They also supply contacts to a range of specialist practitioners and organisations.
Their helpline is supported by highly trained volunteers, all whom have personal experience of cancer or another chronic condition, or have supported a close relative or friend. Their volunteers often provide a lifeline to those whose voices have not been heard, or who are otherwise isolated.
A quick response has always been an essential feature of our service, and this is underpinned by a robust administrative system. The positive effect ofa reliable and timely response on someone's frame of mind is invaluable, especially when so much of their experience can be stressful, spent in limbo and often waiting endlessly for the next appointment or result.
Lastly, they provide financial support in the form of grants for therapies, consultations, nutritional therapy and equipment, all of which help people to manage their condition.
Their funding comes from public donations, including through fund-raising events, from bequests and a small number of foundations.
We are happy to support Yes to Life with their events and promotional activities. Jennifer has spoken at Yes to Life’s expert panel at Camexpo in 2015 as well as organising specialist workshops for those supported by this charity. To find out more about Yes to Life, click here.
