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.

Flag over Capitol Hill!

 I received the Flag today from September 28, 2016. For our 33rd Wedding Anniversary and To Honor those fighting and lost their lives from Prostate Cancer. I requested a Flag from Congresswoman Beatty to be flown over Capitol Hill. Thank you to ZERO The End of Prostate Cancer, Matt Marks, and the Capitol Hill Officer for taking the picture of the Flag waving in the wind! Thank you Congresswoman Beatty also for requesting it for us!
I have met and lost so many friends from Prostate Cancer it is hard to hear that one of our fiends has passed for this horrible disease. Or to find out that one of our friends has Joined the Club that No Man wants to join. This is my way of letting you know that You are not ALONE In your fight. (((Prostate Cancer Community)))
