Inaugurated about four years ago with a membership of over 500 coming from different parts of Ghana, the Peace and Love Hospital Survivors Association (PALSA) is committed to bring together those who have survived breast cancer to serve as role models to other newly diagnosed patients. PALSA is also resolved to educate the public about breast cancer not only on early detection, but early treatment as well as demystifying the myths about the disease in the country.

MISSION: Improve the quality of life of breast cancer survivors.

VISION:  Seeking to bring together those who have survived breast cancer to serve as role models to other newly diagnosed patients throughout their cancer journey.

OBJECTIVES:

Create a network of survivors to support peer and nurse navigation

Encourage and motivate newly diagnosed patients to continue with the treatment

Address the needs of newly diagnosed breast cancer patients while undergoing treatment

Provide access to resources to members to meet emotional, physical and spiritual needs of survivors

Be part of the movement towards early detection and treatment of breast cancer

Currently, PALSA is collaborating with community nurses in the peer-nurse navigation program with the aim of Helping Others through Personal Experience (HOPE) in order to

support the newly diagnosed patients through their treatment journey to avoid defaulting in their treatment after they have been diagnosed.
