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.

Radiation Oncology

My husband just finished 7 weeks of Radiation Treatments for Prostate Cancer at The Zangmeister Cancer Center. They loved Petey so now they will have their very own!

People ask why the Walnut? 
The prostate is the size of a walnut it is also my way of raising awareness to prostate cancer.
