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,

What You Can Do to Reduce Your Risk
Take action to reduce risk by adopting healthy habits and getting regular screenings.
• Stay at a healthy weight and get regular
physical activity
• Avoid tobacco and limit alcohol intake
• Eat healthy with plenty of fruits & vegetables
• Know yourself, family history and your risks
Regular Screenings
For age 20–39
• Have a breast exam by your doctor
or nurse every 3 years
• Report changes in your breast right away
For age 40 or older:
• Yearly mammograms
• Yearly breast exams by your doctor or nurse
• Report changes in your breast right away
• Self-exams are a good option for finding changes
Talk with your health care team about these risk factors:
• Hormone and estrogen therapy
• Breastfeeding
• Alcohol
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.

 Nominations Needed For A Very Special Celebration

Every year we come together to celebrate some very special women. On Thursday, October 4, Tami and Claire will host our very special Horizon of Hope Dinner at the Home Office to recognize women who are living with or are survivors of breast cancer. These women have faced the realities of a diagnosis while embracing life with an energy and determination that are an inspiration to us all, exemplifying the power of the human spirit. We’d also like to recognize the inspirational women who have supported and continue to support those living with the cancer along their journey. You can help with the celebration by nominating women in your life who embody these qualities. Please e-mail your name, address and phone along with the name, address and phone number of your nominee to thinkpink@longaberger.com by September 24, 2012.

Quadriplegic Quest to Overcome

Quadriplegic Quest to Overcome

Hi I’m mdvinceVideo 1

U.S.A. your the best Nation on Earth…..and my fellow Americans have loving hearts that can make life changing differences in people’s lives at a blink of an eye. That’s why I’m asking for your help today. Having never asked for anything in my life and struggling since 1976 to provide for my family and make something of myself a Quadriplegic since July 1976, I’ve convinced myself I cannot defeat my disability no matter how I try nor can I afford stem cell research to heal me to walk one day. Help Me Funds are Needed!

America… can you help a good disabled individual out to pay hospital bills and make ends meet? Stem Cell infusion I cry. My outcry for assistance is very difficult for me to do but enough is enough!  Please share this campaign  YouTube homeYouTube home

I’m a very dedicated hard working individual confined to a wheelchair at age 16 as a quadriplegic for over 31 years and had 2 recent surgeries in Sept 2011 on my spinal cord which has sent me back quite a lot this past year. My spouse and I have always worked and scrapped for 30 years raising our kids and we have earned everything we’ve worked for and have had many ups and downs over the years and now find ourselves trying to make medical bills and ends meet with limited savings, retirement funds, and a quality of life everyone dreams of.

I’m about 3 years from retiring early at age 55 with and will have served 34 years hard time serving our DoD… but my quality of life has went down hill significantly since my surgeries last year and I almost had a tragic death in Jan 2012 while at home on a day off….I’ll spare you the drama but what a b#!ch. I don’t want to beg for help, but for the first time in my life, I want to ask my follow American’s for help and only in America we have capabilities like this to pan-handle to the World. American Innovation We Rock the World.

In closing, would you consider my request for a financial handout…so someone like me can maybe breath easy, pay my medical expenses, and help me fund stem cell infusion ? My beautiful wife and I just want what we all dream of…our golden days in retirement.

I’m not asking for millions. And I don’t want to get into the lime light and be a poster child at anyone’s expense in any way,nor do I want to have press releases and public attention. I’m just trying to live my disabled life and would like not having to struggle any longer or end up sitting out with a tin cup or with a piece of cardboard asking for help at some traffic light should my health degrade further. My spouse has sacrificed so much for almost 30 years keeping me in good health and helping me live my life, raise our children, and I just cannot live with myself if I drag us into the gutter with my health issues as we near our golden days.

Please help me with anything you can! God Bless You All.

Respectfully,
