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.

Special friends

It is an Honor to have met both Jimmy Charles and Johan Schwartz. Thank you both for your voices to help raise awareness for prostate cancer as well. Jimmy wrote a song for prostate cancer called Superman. If you have not heard it you need to listen to it. Last year Johan invited Ray and I out to the track where he was racing. It was my first race and it was exciting.  I hope to return this year at Mid-Ohio Raceway! Thank you Guys for raising awareness for prostate cancer as well! We need all the voices we can get.
