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.

As the wife of a Prostate Cancer SURVIVOR every month is prostate cancer awareness month. And being the Mom of 4 young sons I never want them to hear the words that the doctor told us on June 19th, 2009. I am sorry you have Prostate Cancer!
This time that we have been fighting prostate cancer!
