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.

Hampton Inn stay



June 2013 we attended the Circle of Hope Picnic in Lancaster, Ohio. The theme of the picnic was to wear your cancer colors. Our cancer colors are BLUE for Prostate Cancer. Ray wore everything blue right down to the unmentionables!

The grand prize was an envelope filled with gift certificates, gift cards and food coupons. One of the gift certificates was an over night stay at the Hampton Inn in Lancaster. We used it on August 31st of course Petey had to go with us!

Look at all the fun he was having!

                Hanging out at the hot tub!

Having dinner at Deb's Corner Cafe in Lancaster. Used the gift certificate from the goodies that we got from the picnic!













Ummm....breakfast the next morning! But did Ray share with Petey? NOPE!!!!
