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 4 The Cure

Last night was the Fans 4 The Cure game with the Columbus Clippers. Before the game the team signs the Blue Bat provided by Fans 4 The Cure and given away at the 4th Inning.  Volunteers pass out the prostate cancer information, last night I did passing out the information.

Men:  I know about Prostate Cancer. I had a test recently.
Me: What was your PSA?
Men: (SUPRISED Look)
Me: My husband is a 6 year Survivor of prostate cancer 
Men: my score was________

Then we talked a little more. At the end I Thanked them for getting checked.

Many years ago I was so quiet and shy. But look at me now!
