"It's important for us women to keep up with our self-examinations. I want women to be aware. I have friends who say they don't want to go to the doctor because they're afraid they'll find something. But we can't avoid the issue. Your body tells you when you're sick. Listen to your body."
Williford and Galvan's inspirational stories and others can be found at www.sharingcourage.com, an interactive website dedicated to raising breast cancer awareness.
"We're proud to have two of our members, Maria Galvan and Ruth Williford, featured on products and signs sharing their personal journey as breast cancer survivors," said Dave Hirz, president of Food 4 Less Stores. "Maria's and Ruth's participation is so meaningful in so many ways, but perhaps the most important aspect is the awareness they're raising by encouraging others to take charge of their own health. Maria and Ruth are providing a tremendous service to families by sharing their story to educate others in a positive and effective way."
Food 4 Less' campaign once again features a store-wide sales promotion of popular items, many of which will feature exclusive, specially marked pink packaging. This year, 2,000 items, including Food 4 Less' own products and popular items from Food 4 Less' partners including Kellogg, Kraft, Pepsi, General Mills, Campbell's and Procter & Gamble, will be marked with special shelf tags to highlight their participation.
Last year, Food 4 Less provided more than $8 million in cash and in-kind donations to organizations focused on health, education, the fight against hunger, developing our youth, and the environment.
