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.

Patient Resource

Hi Linda,

We received the “Petey visits Patient Resource” you created and we love it. Thank you so much for sending him to visit with us and for agreeing to share your and your husband’s story with our readers. I think the creation of Petey is a wonderful new step in the need to create awareness around prostate cancer. We wish you the best as you advocate for this important cause. We will be featuring Petey in Cancer Guide as well as through our enewsletter and twitter/Facebook accounts. Our CEO now has one of the Petey figures in his office on display.

Best, Debby
