For Elizabeth Mullen, the August release of a new postage stamp to raise funds for breast cancer research will be somewhat like the birth of a child. A breast cancer survivor who was one of two leading advocates for the creation of the stamp, the 39-year-old founder and CEO of the Covina-based Women's Information Network Against Breast Cancer (WIN ABC) works with a mother's devotion. "Chemotherapy made me sterile, so for me this work is akin to bringing up a child," she said.

The U.S Postal Service will unveil a new stamp in Los Angeles today that is intended to aid the fight against breast cancer by earmarking for the first time a share of sales proceeds for research. The new stamp comes as a result of efforts by a Sacramento physician and a woman who lost a breast to cancer and now heads a Covina-based organization that assists those with the disease. Together, they convinced Congress to pass the necessary legislation.

Frank Henenlotter's hilarious, totally outrageous grin-and-gore comedy "Frankenhooker" takes over tonight as the Nuart's Friday midnight offering, replacing his "Basket Case 2." It couldn't be more appropriate, because "Frankenhooker" is just as gleefully perverse as his "Basket Case" pictures. Shocks-and-yocks is what midnight shows are all about, and the gifted Henenlotter supplies plenty of both.

At ceremonies at Fashion Island, the site of the Orange County Race for the Cure on Sept. 27, U.S. Postal Service officials said the new 40-cent stamp is expected to raise awareness of breast cancer and give the public a chance to help find a cure.
