Around 110,000 cases of cancer are diagnosed in Australia each year, and the disease is a major cause of death. This stamp issue will help raise funds towards the new cancer research and treatment centre at the Austin Hospital, Melbourne.
The Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Centre will offer an integrated approach to cancer treatment, undertaking clinical research in collaboration with the renowned Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research and offering mainstream medical treatment alongside complementary wellness therapies. Stage 1 of the centre opens in July 2012, with the full centre scheduled to open by mid-2013. The centre will provide services for men, women and children with any type of cancer.
The purchase of each sheetlet of 10 x 60c stamps will raise $2 in support of the centre.
Whether for actual postage or for a keepsake, this is a cool purchase that helps people. You can purchase online for delivery anywhere (as I understand) by clicking here.
