Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Breast Cancer Research Stamp is a semi-postal non-denominated postage stamp issued by the United States Postal Service, priced in 2010 as eleven cents higher than the standard first-class letter rate. The surplus above the price of the first-class stamp is collected by the United States Postal Service and allocated to the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense for breast cancer research. If a person used this stamp exclusively, and mailed one letter per day for a year, the resulting donation would amount to US $40. Originally created in 1997, Congress has reauthorized the Breast Cancer Research Stamp several times. The original sponsors for the bill were United States Senators Feinstein, Alfonse D'Amato, and Lauch Faircloth, and United States Representatives Vic Fazio and Susan Molinari. Breast cancer survivor and advocate, Betsy Mullen, breast cancer surgeon, Ernie Bodai and breast cancer advocate David Goodman who lost his first wife to breast cancer, spearheaded the grassroots advocacy efforts in partnership with Senator Feinstein and her colleagues that led to the creation and issuance of this historic stamp designed to save lives.show more
