Dear Mrs. Hoetger:
Thank you for getting in touch with my office regarding prostate cancer. I appreciate your bringing this issue to my attention.
I have passed your concerns along to the legislative assistant in my office who monitors health issues. I will keep your thoughts in mind should this issue come before the Senate.
If you require any other assistance, please call my office at 202-224-2315. Thank you again for being in touch with me.
United States Senator
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.
