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.

Encouragement...

Tonight was our Prostate Cancer Support group meeting. Last year one of our members was going to ride in the Pelotonia but broke his foot. He said that Petey was on top of his TV to give him encouragement to ride this year. I am happy to say he rode this year in the Pelotonia for 25 miles. He also asked me tonight if I wanted Petey back. I said Petey is yours! He said that made it Special and asked for a hug!
In the past 4 years Petey has touched so many lives!
