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.

Proclamations and Resolutions

I will do what ever it takes to raise awareness for Prostate Cancer! This is another blog that I have started with the Proclamations and Resolutions from the Cities, Villages and Townships in Ohio. Many of the have either sent theirs or made a commitment for September. Currently I have 161! My goal is 250 by September 2015, I am not sure if I will reach this goal this time, I'm not going to give up until every Mayor and Council Member has signed a Proclamation or Resolution.

Please support my efforts in raising awareness!
