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.

Pinewood Derby

Woodville, Ohio had an amazing Mayor. His name is Rich Harman. For the past few years he has support my efforts in raising awareness for prostate cancer. He has done Proclamations, and accepted my challenge in lighting a Landmark Blue. Along with all of thus last year he put Blue ribbons through out the Village.

This year he made a Pinewood Derby car for Prostate Cancer Awareness. I am so blessed on the support he is giving to the families.

Go Petey! Go Petey!
