Re: FW: African Women Breast Cancer Stamp 2003
- At the risk of sounding tasteless I thought that a remark should be
directed back at Mr. Holland, excuse me, Dr. Holland:
"Hey Mark, no weenie should be silent where breasts are concerned."
Still happy and still in Albuquerque.

Please read and pass this on. It would be wonderful if 2003 were 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. Every year a new stamp is
printed for Breast Cancer Awareness. When have you ever seen one

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 60 cents. Please help & pass it on.
