What difference will you make?

Yes to Life was created in 2004, after our founder, Robin, lost his daughter to cancer in her early twenties. Robin found that there was a woeful lack of information around treatment options, not to mention support for beneficiaries and their families. In response to this, Yes to Life was born.
Our aim is simple: to treat beneficiaries with the dignity and respect they deserve. We provide judgement-free, impartial emotional support to beneficiaries, survivors and their families to help ensure that they live the best lives possible, in spite of their diagnosis.
Yes to Life also helps people with cancer make informed decisions about using integrative medicine to improve their care. We offer of a large range of services (website, Life Directory, Helpline, Cancer Support Groups, Forums, Conferences, publications, counselling and support)
