Breast Cancer Stamp

Has anyone heard about the Breast Cancer Stamp? I just received an email about this which I am copying below.

Please read and pass this on.

It would be wonderful if 2004 was the year a cure for breast
cancer was found!!!! This is one e-mail you should be glad to pass on. The notion that we could raise $35 million by buying a book of stamps is powerful!

As you may be aware, the US Postal Service recently released its
new "Fund the Cure" stamp to help fund breast cancer research. The stamp was designed by Ethel Kessler of Bethesda, Maryland. It is important that we take a stand against this disease that affects so many of our Mothers, Sisters and Friends.

Instead of the normal 37 cents for a stamp, this one costs 40
cents. The additional 3 cents will go to breast cancer research.
A "normal" book costs $7.40. This one is only $8.00. It takes a
few minutes in line at the Post Office and means so much. If all
stamps are sold, it will raise an additional $35,000,000 for this
vital research.

Just as important as the money is our support. What a statement
it would make if the stamp outsold the lottery this week. What a
statement it would make that we care. I would urge you to do two things TODAY:

1. Go out and purchase some of these stamps.

2. E-mail your friends to do the same. We all know women and
their families whose lives are turned upside-down by breast cancer.

It takes so little to do so much in this drive. I think we can
all afford the additional 60 cents that a book of this stamp
costs. Please help & pass this on.

Breast Cancer Stamp

Hi! Actually, the stamp (and the email you received) have been around since the U.S. Postal Service released it in 1998. Since then, the price of a 'regular' stamp has gone up, so the breast cancer stamps now cost 45 cents apiece.

The "Fund the Cure" stamp was the first of three that the Postal Service has released called "semi-postals" to raise money for important causes. One of the other two was issued to provide assistance to families of 9/11 victims; the other raises money for domestic violence programs. Here's a link to more information on the USPS's own website:

Breast Cancer Stamp

Not sure how old this is - I bought the breast cancer stamp last year and this oen too. It went off the market for a while it was being re-approved.
It's the only stamp I buy.

Hete is the link for the ovarian cancer stamp that we are working on for the third year, I believe.

I used the breast cancer ones for my wedding invitations and RSVP's; I got some nice comments about it. I wish there was a stamp for all gynecological cancers.

Breast Cancer Stamp

I just want to add that the .45 Breast cancer stamp exists because of a very dedicated women named Diane Sackett Nannery from Long Island New York who came up with the idea of a stamp to raise money for breast cancer- It took her a lot of hard work and dedication to get this stamp off the ground-the idea kept getting turned down but Diane would not let them drop it she would not give up until they gave us the breast cancer stamp. unfortunately Diane passed away earlier this year.
