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.

Supporters of Prostate Cancer Awareness

I have been using Zeemaps to keep track of all the Proclamations and Resolutions who are supporting Prostate Cancer Awareness month. My goal is to one day have every City, Village and Township have either a Proclamation or Resolution.

ZERO Out Prostate Cancer
