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.

Year two

I am continuing to raise awareness for Prostate Cancer with asking Mayors and Council Members for a Proclamation or Resolution for September. I set goals last year with how many I wanted to get in a time period. Sadly not all the goals were met. Not from a lack of trying. So this year I am Blessed when one more Mayor and Council Members send a Proclamation or Resolution in the mail. Some days it is like Christmas when I open the box and see one. And the excitement builds when there are more then one.

There will be a lot of Excitement when every City, Village and Township agrees to do one to support National Prostate Cancer Awareness month in September!
