  • Testimonials

    "She was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Joined limau in 2018. It's very informative and the support is very warm. It has enabled her to get the knitted boobs which are more comfortable than the silicone ones which are slippery and come off easily."
    Mary Wangui (46yrs)
    Secondary School Teacher
    "Has diabetes (diagnose with diabetes in 2016) and diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2019. Joining Limau helped her become more positive about her situation because of the immense support."
    Lucille Wairimu (55yrs)
    Stage 2 breast cancer
    "She was diagnosed in March 2019 with nasal pharyngeal (a tumour growing in the nose and outside the nose and caused face to swell. It spread into the lung, liver and caused brain edema). She is still undergoing treatment. She joined Limau in 2019 before she finished chemotherapy. She feels like more of a care gives than a survivor and Limau helped encourage her especially when she saw that others had it worse than her. "
    Stella Momanyi (45YRS)
    "She was diagnosed with fibroids in 2012 because of heavy bleeding. She has to get her uterus removed on 7th October 2019. Joined Limau in October and she has embraced it because of all the support she gets and also by networking with women who are undergoing the same issues as she is."
