Petey

 Mayor Rich Harman of the Village of Woodville, Ohio. Has been a huge supporter in  raising awareness for prostate cancer. For the past two years he has written a Proclamation  for prostate cancer awareness month. I asked along with the Proclamation request to light a Landmark Blue. He again  honored my request and turned the flag poles Blue. Last year he placed Blue ribbons in the Village. 


On Saturday, February 18th he entered this car that he made for the Pinewood Derby. After the Derby he sent it to me. And extra Special gift from  an extra Special Mayor!

Advocates to Descend on Capitol Hill 2017

Hundreds of advocates will put their passion to work as they descend on Capitol Hill at the end of February to fight for increased prostate cancer research funding during ZERO's Annual Advocacy Summit.
During the Summit, ZERO advocates will meet with more than 70 congressional members that have influence over prostate cancer funding and legislative priorities. It is through these meetings that we make a statement on Capitol Hill during the 2018 appropriations process. We're fighting for increased prostate cancer research funding on behalf of all men and their families.
Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo, MD, PhD, MAS, Chair of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, will join this year's speakers list. Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear her speak about the Task Force and what the future recommendations on the PSA could mean for prostate cancer diagnosis.
Melissa Cunningham, PhD, Program Manager, Prostate Cancer Research Program. She will be speaking to advocates about the high-risk, high-reward research that PCRP takes on at the Department of Defense and how advocates can be involved in the research review process.
