Kenny Kellner spent a full day discussing the need to increase access to prostate cancer treatment and education with US representatives. Last week, he did the same with Baltimore Orioles legendary shortstop Cal Ripken, Jr.

A local Dundalk activist has sat with great company over the past two weeks, meeting with US representatives, and baseball’s “Iron Man” to discuss efforts to fight prostate cancer.

Kenny Kellner, Jr., a Patapsco High School graduate who currently lives in Essex, became an advocate for prostate cancer after his grandfather succumbed to the deadly disease. He told The Avenue News earlier this year that he never understood prostate cancer until his grandfather was diagnosed. He had a crash course while caring for his grandfather.
