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.

Summit

Every year we attend the Summit in Washington, DC with ZERO The End OF Prostate Cancer. We have been attending since 2012. If you have never attended before I highly recommend it. It's a great way to have your voice heard on Capitol Hill and speak with Elected Officials from your state. And share your Journey with the Elected Officials to encourage their vote to keep research and funding in the FY Budget! This year the budget was increased from $80 Million to $90 Million and I can say that someone is listening!

Come join us in 2018
