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.

Travels to Kansas

Petey is living in Kansas as soon as Monday! He might be featured in the Patient Resource publication in the Summer. Ray and I are having our stories told about our Journey with Prostate Cancer. And with Petey being a big part of my life now they are wanting to include Petey in the article. It will be so exciting if he is also featured also. I can't wait!
