Petey The Prostate Crusader - created by ZERO advocate Linda Hoetger - has been traveling the country for months, spreading prostate cancer awareness from New York City to Ohio to DC and everywhere in between. Are you educating your community about the disease? If so, how? We want to hear from you!

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.
