Ralphs Stores 'Giving Hope a Hand(R)' in October by Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Initiatives
Date:10/1/2009

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of Ralphs "Giving Hope a Hand®" breast cancer awareness campaign, Ralphs, in partnership with key suppliers, has committed $290,000 in donations to support breast cancer initiatives in the local communities Ralphs serves.

This year's campaign will also feature three Ralphs Team Members who are breast cancer survivors. Stacie Campbell, Robin Hutchison and Debbie Marin share their survivor stories on the packaging of these items, which will be sold exclusively in Ralphs stores. Their stories are also featured on a special website: www.sharingcourage.com.

Hutchison, a cashier at the Ralphs supermarket at 40545 California Oaks Road in Murrieta, will be featured on packages of Private Selection Savory Asian Frozen Vegetables. She shares her story to educate others.

"I was one of those people who assumed that it would never happen to me," said Hutchison, a resident of Murrieta. "But it did happen to me. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003. My battle with breast cancer has made me a stronger person and I now understand the meaning of the phrase 'don't sweat the small stuff,' and I don't anymore. My advice to other women facing breast cancer is to have faith, believe in yourself and stay positive even when things look their worst."

Marin, an administrative assistant at Ralphs headquarters in Compton, will be featured on boxes of Special K Fruit & Yogurt Cereal.

"I'm proud that I got through the most difficult time in my life with just a couple of scars, the rest is history," said Marin, who lives in Lomita. "I tell others that are going through breast cancer to stay informed and don't be afraid to ask questions. When I first went to the oncologist, I took friends with me and wrote down questions since I was still in shock."

In addition, Campbell, a cashier at the Ralphs on Mission Boule
