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.

Medina, Ohio 2016

Good morning Linda;

I wanted to let you know that Medina City Council will be passing a resolution in support of National Prostate Cancer Awareness month at their last meeting in July before they go on recess. I will be in touch as soon as I have that paperwork and send it to you.

Have a great day!

Dawn Conwill
Administrative Office Manager
Mayor’s Office
