  • Alzheimer's Semi-Postal Stamp

    Net proceeds from the Alzheimer's semipostal stamp will be distributed to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to fund Alzheimer's research. The artwork for this stamp is an illustration that first appeared on the 42-cent Alzheimer's Awareness stamp issued in 2008. It shows an elderly woman in profile with a caring hand on her shoulder, with the suggestion of sunlight behind her and clouds in front of and below her.

    First day of issue: November 30, 2017                  Baltimore, MD
