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.

Brunswick, Ohio

We attended the Brunswick, Ohio City Council meeting for a reading and presentation of their Proclamation for Prostate Cancer Awareness month. Before the meeting started we met a 5 year Survivor of prostate cancer. He was one of the 35,000 residents of Brunswick and was there for a Proclamation reading of a different cause. Funny how people cross our paths and always for a reason. Thank you Mayor Falconi for your support!
