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.

My Mission for Prostate Cancer Awareness

When I started this in September of 2014 it was amazing  of the emails that I received. Many of them with I did not know that Prostate Cancer had a month, and Thank you for your efforts to raise awareness. But 108 cities and villages later they are also supporting my efforts to raise awareness.

Please feel free to use the Whereas on my blog and contact your city or village and ask your Mayor to write a Proclamation for Prostate Cancer Awareness month in September.
