On February 12th 2023, Yes to Life, the UK’s integrative cancer care charity, will be hosting what promises to be a thrilling live exploration of a fresh perspective on the mechanisms of cancer. Following eight years of intensive study and research, Mark Lintern will be introducing himself and giving a detailed explanation of his ideas that present a coherent view of carcinogenesis, and have the potential to explain all ten of Hanahan and Weinberg’s hallmarks, as well as to enable an understanding of a further twenty hitherto unexplained features of the disease.
If you are a cancer specialist, you will be well aware of the potential implications of this for both treatment and prevention. But any claimed new thinking about such a thoroughly well-researched disease must be able to stand up to intense scientific scrutiny, and that is precisely what the content of this event will constitute. Three expert panels – of cancer scientists, cancer clinicians and expert patients – will have ample opportunity to question every facet of the thinking, as well as to register their confidence in it, and suggest how we might take things forward.
The Esteemed Panellists:
To ensure a thorough evaluation of these new proposals, we are delighted to welcome these leading thinkers in the field of cancer to our panels:
Scientists: • Prof Paul Davies • Dr Ahmed El-Sakka • Dr Robert Gatenby PhD MD • Prof Michael Lisanti MD-PhD FRSA FRSB FRSC
Clinicians: • Dr Sean Devlin DO MD(H) HMD MS • Dr Nasha Winters ND FABNO • Dr Penny Kechagioglou MBBS (Honours), MRCP, CCT (Clin Onc), MPH, MBA Clinical Oncologist Expert Patients: • Jane McLelland • Daniel Stanciu • Mark Sean Taylor
“For over 2 decades we have evolved our Hallmarks of Cancer and yet still fall short of our understanding of and treatment for this shapeshifting disease. Mark Lintern’s observations add another piece to the puzzle, taking us another step closer to characterizing this as a disease of the terrain versus of the genetics and helps us change course to a more hopeful future in cancer care and prevention.” Dr Nasha Winter ND FABNO
The event is for cancer specialists only and will be free to attend. Places are limited and can be obtained by application. These applications will be screened to ensure the audience is made up entirely of cancer specialists, for example:
• Integrative doctors
• Oncology nutritionists
• Specialist exercise trainers
• Other specialised lifestyle practitioners
• Functional Medicine practitioners specialising in cancer
• Cancer scientists and researchers
• Science writers
This highly specialised audience will also be able to participate in questioning and registering their level of confidence in the soundness of the ideas being presented.
This is a moment not to be missed! The event will be held online on Sunday 12th February 2023 from 15:00 GMT (10:00 EST, 07:00 PST, 16:00 CET) until 20:00 GMT (15:00 EST, 12:00 PST, 21:00 CET).

As mentioned above, places are limited and we are also screening for the most relevant audience – so please be aware that you may not be successful in securing a place. But we will respond to all applications, so you will know one way or the other.

Advances in cancer detection and treatment have resulted in a steady increase in the number of people surviving cancer in the UK. By 2040, more than five million people may be living with acute, chronic or late-appearing consequences of cancer and its treatments. There is a high prevalence of unmet rehabilitation needs in the cancer population, yet many of these side effects, e.g. pain, fatigue, limited range of movement, lymphoedema and peripheral neuropathy, can be effectively treated with physiotherapy. The development of skilled rehabilitation physiotherapists in private practice is essential for providing high-quality cancer rehabilitation.
Professor Campbell was invited to write an article for InTouch, the magazine for members of Physio First. Physio First is a specialist professional network, representing self-employed physiotherapists working in the independent sector.
The article, titled “Working with cancer patients during prehabilitation, rehabilitation and with specific cancer treatment related side effects” can be downloaded below.
