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.

Kick Off To Raising Awareness For Prostate Cancer

Starting January 1st I will be sending out emails, faxes, etc contacting Elected officials requesting a Proclamation or Resolution for Prostate Cancer Awareness month. I will provide you with the information for the documents and request a copy for myself. The documents are used throughout Ohio and on Capitol Hill in raising awareness. I will also request that you light a Landmark Blue in September for awareness as well. Please share a picture with us and they will be showcased here as well.
If you would like to present your proclamation or resolution I will be more than happy to attend if possible, or if there is a prostate cancer patient in your area we can make arrangements for them to attend. It means so much for the support from our elected officials in our Journeys with this horrible disease.
Please feel free to contact me with your support
