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.

Mayors and Council Members supporting prostate cancer

Thank you to all the Mayors and Council Members who have supported my efforts in raising awareness for Prostate Cancer. And would be honored to have your continued support in this epic movement. My hope is that one day Ohio will be the first state to have a Proclamation or Resolution for September!

Mayors and Council Members supporting Prostate Cancer Awareness month in September!
