183: Robin Daly - Yes To Life

Robin Daly

 Robin Daly is the Founder and Chairman of Yes to Life, the UK’s Integrative Cancer Care Charity. Robin founded the charity Yes to Life in response to the immense difficulties he faced in finding authentic, appropriate and available complementary and lifestyle treatments for his daughter Bryony, when she was facing cancer for the third time, aged twenty-two.

Cancer is one of the most complex conditions and is fraught with contradictions and disagreements in even the most fundamental areas, such as causes and mechanisms. In order to make intelligent decisions, one has to become a minor expert and in this field that is a very tall order. Then, even when you find approaches that may help you with your particular cancer, at your particular stage, as well as a practitioner who offers them in a location you are able to reach, there is still the matter of paying for what is uniformly private medicine.

So essentially people need help – they need help in finding a shortcut to the most promising avenues and some need help with funding. Above all, they needed a positive, supportive response to their difficulties. What was needed was a charity with no agenda other than to help people to build their own integrative programme – using the best on offer from both orthodox medicine and a broad range of other approaches – and then to support them in implementing it. So Robin established Yes to Life in 2005 as the first charity offering direct support to anyone with cancer in the UK looking for ways to help their own recovery.

Robin’s Top Tips

  1. Eat real food – you have to be determined and self educated.
  2. You are not a machine – be committed but you need to be kind to yourself and be flexible.
  3. It is personal – what is great for another person might not work for you – you have to discover your way.
  4. Respect the power of nature.
