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.

September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

Last year I started contacting Cities, Villages and Townships asking for a Proclamation or Resolution for Prostate Cancer Awareness. I had 198 commitments and 166 have sent me copies of theirs. It is my hope that one day every City, Village and Township  will have one in place. This year I will be posting them here as I hope to have continued support for Prostate Cancer Awareness again this year.
