Each September, the nation recognizes prostate cancer awareness month to help defeat the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men. An estimated 26,000 husbands, sons, brothers, fathers, and grandfathers will lose their lives to prostate cancer in 2016.
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 150 Mayors, Legislators, City Council Members, and Town/Village managers will issue a proclamation or resolution declaring September prostate cancer awareness month.
Ohioans can help raise awareness and funding for research by participating in the national ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk Series coming to Columbus, Cincinnati, and Cleveland this fall. ZERO is a national nonprofit with the mission to end prostate cancer. To participate, visit support.zerocancer.org.
