The U.S. Postal Service currently has a 45-cent fundraising or "semipostal" stamps available for purchase at Post Offices, online at The Postal Store, and by toll-free phone order at 1 800 STAMP-24 one of which is the Breast Cancer Research stamp.


The Breast Cancer Research semipostal was issued on July 29, 1998, at a first day ceremony held in the White House. It was the first semipostal in U.S. history.

To date, the stamp has raised over $53 million for breast cancer research. By law, 70 percent of the net amount raised is given to the National Institutes of Health and 30 percent is given to the Medical Research Program at the Department of Defense.

Additional funds are needed for breast cancer research and we can HELP. We can raise an additional $35 million by buying a book of stamps and it is powerful idea!
