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.

Veterans Center Care Days

Each month the Columbus VA has a Veterans Center Care Days. Vendors are invited to attend to share their services to the Veterans. I have had a table for the most part unless something comes up. 
The great part of dong this is that I can share what Ray, I and Petey do for ZERO and encourage them to also join us as ZERO Champions. 
As you can see from the pictures on the table we have met with Senator Brown, Senator Portman, Congressman Racceni and our biggest supporter Congresswoman Beatty. She has shared with Congress and others on my efforts in raisng awareness for Prostate Cancer.  Each year with ZERO we attend the Summit and on the last day we meet with our elected officials on Capitol Hill. The pictures with the Senators and Congressman was taken on the Hill. Congresswoman Beatty was taken at her Town Hall meeting on May 3, 2016.
