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.

70 Proclamations and Resolutions for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month 2017!

I have received some already and some are going to be read and presented at Council members in August and September! Thank you to all the elected officials who have supported us in the past and in the future!

And Thank you to those who have accepted the challenge to light a Landmark Blue or tie Blue ribbons in your community showing support as well. Just imagine the lives you are touching and showing those fighting that you care. And honor those who have lost their battle. They may be gone but not forgotten!
