Each September, the nation recognizes prostate cancer awareness month to help defeat the third leading cause of cancer deaths among men. An estimated 27,000 husbands, sons, brothers, fathers, and grandfathers will lose their lives to prostate cancer in 2017.

An Ohio resident has been hard at work to ensure that these proclamations are renewed annually. Linda Hoetger has spoken with local leaders to remind communities of the pain and suffering of prostate cancer. As a result, more than 400 Mayors, Legislators, City Council Members, and Town/Village managers and County Commissioners will issue a proclamation or resolution declaring September prostate cancer awareness month.

The Petey collection

These are the newest collection of Petey's. Putting hats on them gives them even more personality since Prostate Cancer does not discriminate!
I still have Petey's without hats also!
An egg carton makes a great storage container for shipping or carrying! You can get your very own for a $2.00 donation for each Petey.
