Each September, the nation recognizes prostate cancer awareness month to help defeat the third leading cause of cancer deaths among men. An estimated 29,430 husbands, sons, brothers, fathers, and grandfathers will lose their lives to prostate cancer in 2018.

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, Mayors, Legislators, City Council Members, and Town/Village managers and County Commissioners will issue a proclamation or resolution declaring September prostate cancer awareness month.

Franklin County Government Tower lit BLUE

Thank you Franklin County Board of Commissioners and public facilities team! The tower will keep the building lit blue the entire month of September recognizing National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. The 26th floor is lit on all sides.

And of course Petey was there too!
