The U-S Postal Service wants to make it easier for Iowans to buy Breast Cancer Research stamps. A new stamp order form is being unveiled today whichcan be mailed in or faxed in to purchase the special stamps. The stamps cost 40-cents each, with 7-cents going toward breast cancer research. Joan Blum is cancer prevention coordinator at the Mercy Cancer Center. The order forms are making their debut today in Des Moines but will soon be available statewide. Blum says the stamps are a great way to make ‘giving’ accessible to many people who otherwise couldn’t afford it. More than 65-million of the stamps have been sold since their introduction last July. That’s raised nearly 6-million dollars for research. Blum says the research dollars are making an impact. Estimates are that 190-thousand American women will bediagnosed with breast cancer this year and 14-thousand will die from it.
