Guess what “Loono” means? Any ideas? You could not find it in a dictonary and your friends do not know either. Loono – lůno in Czech – means a womb where babies grow and where we all feel (felt) safe. We (Loono) create a safe atmosphere where people are not scared to talk about their health and open their hearts to us.
Kateřina Vacková’s short story
I was 22 years old. I studied the fourth year of Medicine at uni and was completely healthy. Then something started growing on my left ovary. It was getting larger and was malignant.
I had been waiting for eight hours until doctors agreed on a treatment. Eight hours during which I was sitting on bed and asking myself why. Why me? Why so young? Why now? I decided what I really want from my life and what I am going to do for it during those eight livelong hours.
And that is how Loono was founded. Loono should help especially young people to realize that the right time to think about their health is now. As it could be too late couple months later.
