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.

Words I need to keep in mind!

I seen this today and it is words I need to keep in mind!

Since 2014 I have been contacting Mayors and Council Members for a Proclamation or Resolution for Prostate Cancer. I would set goals for myself but when I did not meet my own goal I would get dissapointed with myself. Adding one more City, Village or Township to my growing supporters I am making progress!
