The UK's integrative cancer care charity

Yes to Life empowers people with cancer to make informed decisions about their cancer care options. For more than a decade we have provided evidence-based information to those in need.  We are proud to have helped more than a 1,000 people and will continue doing everything we can to support even more. Our singular focus on supporting people with cancer with objective, impartial information means we do not sell drugs, treatments or therapies.

What we do

We provide information to guide people with cancer through the confusing options for care and lifestyle choices.  Our aim is to help them make informed decisions.  We simplify the complex and facilitate access to expert knowledge.

We quickly provide simple, straightforward information about what people with cancer can do right now to start making a positive difference to their wellbeing.

How we do it

We offer individual support through our helpline and website, and information through blogs and publications, radio broadcasts, workshops and conferences.

We also supply contacts to a range of specialist practitioners and organisations.

Our 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.  Our 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 of a 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, we provide financial support in the form of grants for therapies, consultations, nutritional therapy and equipment, all of which help people to manage their condition.

Our funding comes from public donations, including through fund-raising events, from bequests and a small number of foundations.
