Each September, the nation recognizes prostate cancer awareness month to help defeat the third leading cause of cancer deaths among men. An estimated 29,430 husbands, sons, brothers, fathers, and grandfathers will lose their lives to prostate cancer in 2018.

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, Mayors, Legislators, City Council Members, and Town/Village managers and County Commissioners will issue a proclamation or resolution declaring September prostate cancer awareness month.

Petey loved by all!

Earlier this month we went to Wright-Patterson AFB to see Dr. Arzola the doctor that diagnosed Ray's Prostate cancer. He told us his kids are always asking for his Petey that we gave him. He keeps telling them no and he is still sitting on his desk! It is amazing how a little walnut is such a big hit!
