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.

10TV Commit To Be Fit Healthy Hike

Yesterday was our 31st Anniversary and also the 10TV Commit To Be Fit Healthy Hike at Blendon Woods Metro Park. As we were walking people seen me taking pictures with Petey and would stop and ask why? Some knew what Petey stood for and then they would talk about their Journey's with prostate cancer.  It is so nice to hear men and families not being so afraid to talk about prostate cancer.
