Each September, the nation recognizes prostate cancer awareness month to help defeat the third leading cause of cancer deaths among men. An estimated 29,430 husbands, sons, brothers, fathers, and grandfathers will lose their lives to prostate cancer in 2018.

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, Mayors, Legislators, City Council Members, and Town/Village managers and County Commissioners will issue a proclamation or resolution declaring September prostate cancer awareness month.

Blog Name Change

I have changed the name of my blog with the Proclamations. When I first started it I was contacting Mayor's in Ohio. And then Council Members and Trustees are also doing Proclamations & Resolutions for Prostate Cancer Awareness month in September. Currently there are 153 Cities, Villages and Townships supporting my efforts of increasing awareness for Prostate Cancer in Ohio. My goal is to have every City, Village and Township have a Proclamation or Resolution by 2016. It is AMAZING on the support that I have gotten at this time and Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
