Alzheimer's Disease to be Highlighted on Stamp Next Year
Date:11/1/2007

rect costs of Medicare and Medicaid and indirect costs to business of employees who are caregivers of persons with Alzheimer's, amounts to more than $148 billion annually," said Harry Johns, Alzheimer's Association president and CEO.

The Alzheimer's Awareness commemorative stamp continues the Postal Service tradition of raising public awareness of health and social issues through its stamp program. Recent stamps have highlighted important issues such as literacy, hospice care, breast cancer awareness, AIDS awareness, organ and tissue donation, and philanthropy; and, in the case of the Breast Cancer Research stamp, helped raise funds for research.

While no official release date has been confirmed, the Alzheimer's stamp will be available for purchase in 2008. More information on this stamp and others in the 2008 stamp program will be available soon.

An independent federal agency, the U.S. Postal Service is the only delivery service that visits every address in the nation, 146 million homes and businesses, six days a week. It has 37,000 retail locations and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to pay for operating expenses, not tax dollars. The Postal Service has annual revenues of $75 billion and delivers nearly half the world's mail.
