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 Awareness Month

I contacted Governor Kasich's office last year as Ohio did not have anything for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. I got the text that they needed to do one. So this year I am happy to say that I was able to get this accomplished and glad to see it listed with all the other Resolutions!
