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.

New Bern, North Carolina 2016

New Bern, North Carolina is supporting my mission to raise awareness for Prostate Cancer in September. I emailed Mayor Outlaw and he gave my name to Alderman Taylor. Alderman called me personally and was going to hand deliver the Proclamation to me in DC. Unfortunately he will not be in DC until March. Looks like a trip to North Carolina is in order!
Thank You Mayor Outlaw and Alderman Taylor!
