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

Last year it was my mission to contact every City, Village and Township in my home state of Ohio. As I was doing this I was finding other states that has Proclamations or Resolutions supporting Prostate Cancer Awareness as well. So this year I will be adding the Proclamations and Resolutions to Petey's blog. By September 30, 2015 there were 166 written so mere presented to us at Council meetings and what and Honor it was.

My mission will continue this year and years to come! Thank you for your support
