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.

Fairfield, Ohio 2016

Mrs. Hoetger,

Mayor Miller is happy to issue this proclamation. I gathered from your email that it should be proclaim the month of September for Prostate Cancer Awareness, however, do you want to receive it now or closer to September? Please let me know and I will either get it done or make a note for later this summer.


Alisha Wilson
Clerk of Council
City of Fairfield
