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.

There here! There here!

This is the sample run of Petey the Prostate Crusader!
A year ago I had never payed attention to Prostate Cancer until June 19, 2009! That is the day we found out that Ray has it. Allot of women are afraid to talk about it because it is so personal. But as you can see I am not a silent partner to my husband! This week we will have two dates that are important to us, the 19th for the 1st year with cancer and then on the 20th as that is the anniversary of our 1st date 27 years ago.
