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.

Relay for Life Lancaster, Ohio

Last night our group had  tables set up at the Relay for Life Lancaster. I had Petey there along with the Proclamations from the President, Governor and Mayor of Columbus. All supporting Prostate Cancer Awareness.  People were saying they remembered Petey from last year or they have a Petey! It's so nice to hear that he is still helping to raise awareness in this horrible disease.

We had prostate cancer information on the table as well some took the information. At the end some came by the table when most of the crowds were gone and talked more about prostate cancer and took more information. Now it has my brain thinking for the next events.

Watch  out brainstorming about to happen. One idea is the bag ideas with the information inside. Hoping to get businesses to donate drawstring backpacks. If you know of a business or own a business an would like to donate any please contact me.
