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.

Grow and Give Fundraiser

Petey and I are participating in Grow & Give to save lives and end prostate cancer. Help Petey and I by joining Grow & Give or making a donation.
One in seven American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime. That's one in seven fathers, sons, husbands, brothers, partners, and friends. That’s a lot of dudes in need of your support. Please join me in growing your facial hair to do good for your fellow man! You can also make a donation to my efforts and help create Generation ZERO - the first generation of men free from prostate cancer. See more at
