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.

$90 Million!

We received news about the Prostate Cancer Research Program right as we were headed home. Our actions in Washington, DC along with many others this week will go a long way to keeping the $90M for 2018. While we’re all pumped up from the Summit, can you do ONE thing TODAY?

We need more Champions across the Country. Help us in the fight to end prostate cancer by sharing #CountMeIn
