Breast Cancer Stamp

Please read and pass this on. It would be wonderful if 2007 were the year a cure for breast cancer was found!!!!

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 39 cents for a stamp, this one costs 45 cents The additional 6 cents will go to breast cancer research A "normal" book costs $7.80. This one is only $9.00. 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 out sold the lottery this week. What a statement it would make that we care. I 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.

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. ((My future SIL was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in December '04.))

We can all afford the $1.20. Please help & pass it on.

Hey! Actually it was Jan. 05, but close enough, lol.

Thanks for your support of this cause; I really appreciate all you've done on behalf of all of us who have be affected by this beast of a disease.

Love you!
