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.

Thank you for from a Caregiver!

Thank you to all the Senators and others who have accepted my Friend Request. June 19, 2009 my life forever changed from wife to caregiver. On this day my husband and I heard those devistating words no man wants to hear. Prostate cancer! Even worse people telling you. That is the best cancer too have. Really!
Since become a caregiver I also have become a Advocate for prostate cancer awareness in Ohio and on Capitol Hill. We have been in many of your offices on the Hill sharing our Journey along with others from across the nation. We also ask that you sign the Dear Colleague letter to continue funding for the Prostate Cancer Research Program.
Thank you for listening while we are sharing. You make not understand how much it means too us!
Please sign the 2018 Prostate Cancer Research Program Senate Dear Colleague letter.
