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.

David O'Leary

Remember Dave and Connor O'Leary from the Amazing Race? They were the Father and Son team from a few years ago but was not able to continue as Dave tore his Achilles heel and had to with draw from the race. I was heart broken as they were my favorite team.
Dave was diagnosed with proatate cancer and Connor had cancer also. Well this last season they returned and again my favorite team! This time they were able to finish and WON The Amazing Race.
A few days ago I tweeted to Dave and tonight he retweeted. I was so HAPPY I got choked up some. He even had another guy sign the petition.
One day we will get the White House BLUE in September for Prostate Cancer Awareness month!
Dave is signature #1304!
THANK YOU Dave!
