Each time you check out your groceries at your local Safeway supermarket, you have a chance to help in the fight against prostate cancer. 

Safeway customers in Baltimore and throughout Maryland can donate $1 or more, which will be added to their order at checkout stands, as part of Safeway’s annual campaign to support prostate cancer research at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center.

On Thursday, June 2 at 3:00 p.m., top cancer scientists brought attention to this important cause -- Dr. William Nelson, director of the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center and researcher Dr. Robert Ivkov served as a guest grocery bagger at the Safeway on Boston Street.

Since 2007, Safeway has donated more than $3 million to the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center’s prostate cancer program.
