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

Last year I asked the Governor's office if Ohio had a Resolution for Prostate Cancer Awareness month.  Answer No but if you get the text we need it can be done. So with fire under my feet I go the needed text. So I am excited to see this what I got accomplished and signed for Ohio!

The first one signed September 2014!
