Stampin' Up! Partners with the Huntsman Cancer Institute to Raise Funds for Breast Cancer Research
SALT LAKE CITY (October 1, 2004)- October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Stampin' Up!® is doing its part to Stamp Out Breast Cancer. A new Hope Is. stamp set has been specially designed for this breast cancer fundraiser and will be sold from October 1 through November 19. This beautiful set, manufactured in symbolic pink rubber, includes four versatile stamps that can be used for a variety of inspirational art pieces.
"Breast cancer affects all of us," said Shelli Gardner, Stampin' Up! cofounder and CEO. "Most everyone knows someone who has battled this terrible disease. Stampin' Up! wants to make a difference. We are delighted to heighten awareness among our 40,000 demonstrators and their customers while raising money for breast cancer research."
As part of its Stamp Out Breast Cancer promotion, Stampin' Up! will donate $2 from the sale of each Hope Is. stamp set to Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI). This world-renowned institute houses the High Risk Breast Cancer Research Clinic, where scientists work to discover gene mutations that increase the risk of breast cancer. HCI treats thousands of patients from around the country each year and shares its findings with the world through its membership in the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. HCI also provides comprehensive public education resources.
