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.

Ed Randall's Fans for the Cure

August 22, 2014 was Ed Randall's Fans for the Cure with the Columbus Clippers at Huntington Park. Fans for the Cure teams up with Minor League Baseball to raise awareness for prostate cancer. Before the game the Columbus Clipper signed a BLUE bat to be GIVEN AWAY that night. 
No Obligation or Purchase necessary! 




Ray (my husband) will be a 5 year prostate cancer Survivor on October 12, 2014. He was diagnosed on June 19, 2009 with an aggressive form of  prostate cancer. We were hoping that the day of the Prostatectomy there would be no more camer but that was nto the case. It had escaped the prostate and into the Lymph-nodes.
