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

Mrs. Hoetger,
Mayor Outlaw has forwarded your email to me. Our Board approved the proclamation on January 12, 2016, and it was signed by the Mayor. Alderman Victor Taylor had hoped to personally deliver the proclamation to you in DC. However, it appears from the date provided in your email that the two of you may be in DC at different times, as he is scheduled to be there March 5-9th. Therefore, I will mail the proclamation to you today to ensure that you have it by February 22nd.
Thank you.
Brenda E. Blanco
Executive Assistant/Deputy City Clerk
