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.

One year ago.....

It has been a year now since we found out that Ray has Prostate Cancer! It has been a year of ups and downs, but as you can see Petey is keeping me sane! I was in the kitchen earlier and thinking about an idea for Petey on his tractor. Ans lo and behold and idea was born! I am going to keep you in suspense until I get it done!
