Breast Cancer Stamp


It would be wonderful if 1999 were the year a cure for breast cancer was found!!!!

The notion that we could raise $16 million by buying a book of stamps is powerful!

As you may be aware, the U.S. 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 kills and maims so many of our mothers, sisters, friends.

Instead of the normal $.33 for a stamp, this one costs $.40. The additional $.07 will go to breast cancer research. A "normal" book costs $6.60. 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 $16,000,000 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 urge each of you to do two things TODAY:

Many of us 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.

Please help!
