Background: The U.S. Postal Service has a long tradition of issuing special stamps to help raise public awareness about important health and social issues.

These special stamps have run the gamut from AIDS Awareness to Organ and Tissue Donation to Prostate Cancer Awareness to Hospice Care to Diabetes to Alzheimer’s. 

The Heart Health commemorative Forever stamp raises awareness about the importance of maintaining a healthy heart because coronary heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death among men and women in the United States.
