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 Survivors, Caregivers, Friends United

Have you been diagnosed or know someone with prostate cancer and are on Facebook? This is my Facebook group that maybe be helpful to you. When my husband was diagnosed June 19, 2009 it was like information overload of all the information that I was finding. Suggestions were to become students of prostate cancer.

With my group we share everything prostate related news, treatment options, encouragement, support and events.

Please feel free to share with others. It helps to let them know they are not ALONE in their Journey with prostate cancer.
