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.

What encourages me in our Journey

Sadly one of the Survivor who wrote one of the Nomination letters in 2012 has passed away. When we started this Journey 6 years ago you very seldom heard those dreaded words.. Prostate Cancer. I am so blessed that Ray will talk about having prostate cancer in public and to others. So many families will suffer in Silence because they do not want anyone to know.
