Safe Haven Cancer Support Centre and Safe Haven Cancer Society were the inspiration of Janet Brakohiapa, a cancer survivor who after going through the treatments which saved her life wanted to share the experience with others who are apprehensive about the disease , the symptoms and effects of the treatments.


Together with her brother, a radiologist,  Janet started Safe Haven Cancer Support Centre in Ghana whose main objective is to provide basic and general information about cancer, particularly breast cancer and also to bring some awareness and education about how early detection can save and lengthen the lives of people who  have been diagnosed. It  wants to spread the message that life goes on during and after a cancer diagnosis. It also seeks to offer to cancer victims, their families and friends, encouragement spiritual and emotional support, through their ordeal.  It offers information on where cancer patients can find resources and supports to help them manage their lives during and after treatment.


Janet soon realised that this service was needed not only in Ghana but also in her community in Canada. Its objectives are identical to the Safe Haven Cancer Support Centre in Ghana.


Since their inception, the organisations have been a source of information, encouragement and hope for cancer victims and their families, newly diagnosed patients and cancer survivors of African descent

We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
