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.

Prostate Cancer Anonymous vs Awareness



Hi my name is Linda and I became a Prostate Cancer Caregiver 
June 19, 2009

I joined the club Prostate Cancer Anonymous but I myself don't want to stay Anonymous. It is time to change that Awareness! Usually women fight for breast cancer awareness but for me I fight for Prostate Cancer Awareness. Walk in my shoes and you will understand!
