MUTHONI MATE: Founded in 2017, Cancer Café is an innovative platform that bridges the information gap between health care providers and their patients, caregivers and the general public over a meal or drinks. Initiated by Muthoni Mate, a breast cancer survivor, the regular meetings are held in a forum of everyone touched by cancer where, the public consults with specialists, share, learn and more importantly bring back the dignity taken away by cancer. The cancer café also represents the voice of cancer survivors at the National Cancer Control Strategy technical working group and assisting in Monitoring, Evaluation and Research in partnership with National and county Cancer Control programs among other leadership roles in various capacities.
