It has been almost a year that I have been contacting Cities, Villages and Townships in Ohio asking for a Proclamation or Resolution for Prostate Cancer Awareness month in September. Prostate Cancer Awareness moth is not only a state awareness campaign it is also recognized by the President of the United States. For the past couple of years I have the signed (well stamped) Proclamation from President Barrack Obama. One day our families will also be represented with The White House turning BLUE in September. If it can be turned pink in October I don't understand why we can not have it done for our Husbands, Sons, Fathers, Uncles etc. I wish that someone from the White House would call and say YES WE WILL LIGHT THE WHITE HOUSE BLUE IN SEPTEMBER!!! Honest this time when I get a call from The White House I will not put you on Hold. Like I did when I was volunteering at the Elementary School that my son attended at the time.
