Together we can

Give Breast cancer survivors A new lease on life

 For every 100,000 women in Kenya 34 are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. Many of them cannot access breast prosthesis after a Mastectomy 

Our mission is to change that!

CONNECTING LIVES ONE STITCH AT A TIME

Build a world that is safe where no woman has to feel the stigma that comes with breast cancer.

Limau Cancer Connection is a non-profit organization in CA, USA and a Community Based Organization (CBO) in Kenya that helps breast cancer survivors to form meaningful friendships through knitting circles, that create special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone mastectomies with an aim to end the stigma caused by breast cancer

The Knitted Knockers

Knitted Knockers are knitted prostheses for breast cancer survivors. So far, we have trained over 70 people to make them: these include HIV patients, persons with physical disabilities, cancer survivors, orphans and more. We call them the ‘Pink Warriors Knitters’.
