Limau Knitted prostheses are an affordable and comfortable alternative to traditional breast prostheses for women who have undergone mastectomies or other breast-related procedures. These prostheses are hand-knitted with soft, lightweight materials and provide a natural shape and feel. Unlike traditional prostheses that can be heavy, sweaty, and require special bras or camisoles, Limau's knitted prostheses can be worn comfortably with a regular bra. The best part is that these prostheses are offered to those in need for free by volunteer knitters.
At Limau Cancer Connection, we understand the struggles that women who have undergone mastectomies or other breast procedures face when it comes to finding comfortable and affordable breast prosthetics. That's why we've created
Limau Knitted Prostheses - special, handmade breast prostheses that are soft, comfortable, and beautiful. They mimic the shape and feel of a real breast, and can be worn immediately after surgery with no special bras or camisoles required.
Our Limau Knitted Prostheses are provided free of charge to those who request them, and we're proud to partner with medical clinics, cancer centers, nurse navigators, imaging centers, radiologists, and breast surgeon offices to provide these prostheses to their patients. We currently support over several medical clinics and hospitals across the country and continue to create partnerships with many more. With the hope that many will see Limau Knitted Prostheses as a wonderful alternative to traditional, heavy and expensive prosthetics. They don't require special fittings, order specialists, prosthetic bras, insurance approval, and can be worn as soon as cleared for it. They are also quite adjustable by removing and shifting stuffing, which can help for women going through Tissue Expansion reconstruction, as well as for lumpectomies with radiation.
We offer two ways for medical providers to partner with us simply send us an email..
We provide Limau Knitted Prostheses directly to medical clinics in the community. This way, patients can pick out the color, size and style they prefer, and take them home with them. It's a win-win for everyone involved, as it's more personal and efficient. The local group can leave contact information for reordering supplies.
