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.

Lakemore Village, Ohio 2016

I will continue to raise awareness for Prostate Cancer Awarenes. I have become so blessed to receive the support that I have the past two years.
Excerpt from the full article!
Also at the regular meeting, Council adopted a proclamation raising awareness of prostate cancer.
One in seven men will get prostate cancer during his lifetime and prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths among men, according to the proclamation.
The proclamation states that all men are at risk for prostate cancer so the village is encouraging its residents to get prostate screenings regularly, as early detection is critical for savings lives.
