Our Work

Breast cancer awareness talks and events

We have conducted awareness talks at LinkedIn, IIM Indore, SAP, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar University, Genpact, Hyatt Place, Indraprastha University,

Cancer screening

We organize cancer screening camps both for men and women and they are free of charge for economically weaker sections of the society.

Emotional support and events

We also manage a support group ‘Happiness Surrounds Us’ that currently has 120+ cancer warriors.

Financial support

Yes to Life provides financial support to cancer patients for treatment and also for diagnostic investigations for cancer. We also take up cases for treatment support which are her2+.

Rehabilitation support

Breast cancer patients have to undergo surgery and many patients loose one breast or in some cases both. The news of cancer diagnosis is devastating

Hi, I am Anita Kansil from New Delhi. I am a home maker and was just 41 years old in October 2010, when I was diagnosed with 2nd stage breast cancer. Everyone in my family was shocked to hear the news. Read More

It was a sunny afternoon of 22nd February, 2015. Winter was at its best kind with just a chilly breeze in the air and the sun shining it’s brightest. It was a normal day for everyone except me. Read More

My journey began in 2011, when I had severe Lumbar spine problem for which I was suggested to go for an Ayurvedic treatment wherein the doctor felt a lump in my right breast, which though I was aware of but didn’t take any action until then.Read More

“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you for making this breast cancer awareness lecture successful and resourceful not only for the students but for the faculty as well. It was an honour for us to be able to hear your ideas. Although our institute strives to provide the best instructional experiences to our students but we cannot replicate the world of work experiences you presented to the students. Your ideas and deep insights sparked lively deliberations amongst the participants. I hope we can again arrange such fruitful events with you in future. Your contributions are greatly appreciated! “

"Being diagnosed in my early thirties was devastating, as is the case with anybody at any age. But drawing inspiration everyday from the support group was the only motivation, aptly called “Happiness Surrounds Us” was the only motivation I needed to pull through those tough times. It was like being a part of this huge family, most of whose members I had never met but still felt this very strong bond that was nothing compared to any relationship that I had felt before. One query from this side and there would be multiple responses even at the most odd hours from survivors wanting to help. It felt as if the Universe had finally given us all a reason to have cancer. The constant positive energy that I drew from these courageous women made my life worth living again, at the fullest. And to share the lessons learned in this journey with the lesser privileged sections of the society through free cancer screenings and awareness camps across the city made it all seem even more meaningful. Thank you, Yes to Life for making me realise how you can take out the good from the worst, at all times!!!"

“It took me 20 days post diagnosis to decide on starting my chemo. I was filled with fear and despair and that is when I met Shruti from the 'Yes to Life' NGO. The empathy shown by her, the warmth and comfort she gave me is hard to forget. You meet Neeti and Shruti and the energy and warmth that they radiate its so so lovely. After my first chemo, I was added to the support group which has been such a big support. It's like having an extended family to reach out that too without any judgement. I have not just reached out to the group to ask questions during my treatment like..how long does it take for the eyebrows to return, sharing my success during the treatment, guess what am done with chemo and my skin glows 🙂 to hey I just did 10 sun salutations! This group is such a strong support network, a family that you don't want to break ties with. These are two amazing women who never hesitate to go back to their journey and recall how they dealt with issues faced by them."
