Robin is the Founder and Chairman of Yes to Life. His daughter Bryony contracted a rare cancer at age 9yrs and had two recurrences, the second of which proved fatal at 23yrs. He and his family experienced the immense difficulties facing those who wish to use Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) as part of an integrative strategy to meet this most feared and lethal disease.
This dire state of affairs prompted him to try and change the status quo to one where patients' wishes are respected and supported, and the potential inherent in taking an integrative approach are within the reach of everyone. In September 2010 Robin was awarded a Highly Commended for New Initiatives by The Beacon Fellowship for his work through Yes to Life. He was also awarded the 'Outstanding Achievement Award' at camexpo in 2015.
Jerome is one of Britain's leading medical health journalists. In his writings, he brings the latest breakthroughs in medical health to a wider audience, emphasising that science-based does not always mean drug-based and that natural approaches are achieving astounding success rates.
