Horizon of Hope Lives


Horizon of Hope Lives

I like to say that, at Longaberger, we were pink before pink was cool. Through Horizon of Hope, we’ve raised more than 15 million dollars over the past 16 years for breast cancer research and education as well as supporting families who live with breast cancer every day.

The women of Longaberger have taken the Horizon of Hope challenge and run with it. They’ve educated millions of women about early detection and pinked up homes all over the country with our Horizon of Hope designs. And, at the same time, raised millions of dollars.

Join us today for your mom, your sister, your daughter. For you.

Warmly,

Signs & Symptoms
The most common symptom of breast cancer is a new lump or mass. Common symptoms are:
• Swelling of all or par t of a breast
• Skin irritation or dimpling
• Breast or nipple pain
• Nipple retraction (turning inward)
• Redness, scaliness, or thickening of the nipple or breast skin
• A nipple discharge other than breast milk Sometimes breast cancer can be detected first in the lymph nodes under the arm or
around the collar bone. Swollen lymph nodes should also be reported to your doctor.
Did You Know…
• A breast exam should be done at least every 3 years for women in their 20s and 30s, and yearly for women 40 and older.
• Women should know how their breasts normally look and feel and report changes to a doctor right away.
• Beginning in their 20s, women should know the benefits of a breast self-exam (BSE) and star t self exams at home.
• Most women with one or more risk factors never develop the disease, while many women with breast cancer have no apparent risk factors.
• Early detection saves thousands of lives each year, and can improve chances of diagnosis at an early stage and successful
treatment.
• Your risk of developing breast cancer increases as you age.
• Family history of cancer can increase your risk—however, 85% of women who get breast cancer do not have a family history this disease.
