On June 22, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan announced that he has received a diagnosis of a "very advanced and very aggressive" cancer that has spread throughout his body. Read coverage of his diagnosis and fight with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma here.
Since revealing his cancer diagnosis in June, Gov. Larry Hogan has forged a sprawling yet intimate support network that includes friendships with a middle-aged mother of three, a man with Down syndrome and Andrew, the 5-year-old boy who now considers the governor his pen pal.
The slogan ¿Hogan Strong¿ is spreading beyond a social media hashtag or the governor¿s own outreach. Route One Apparel, a small business founded by a University of Maryland junior over four years ago, has created a Hogan Strong T-shirt, designed with the motto and a cancer awareness ribbon ¿ in a Maryland flag pattern, of course. For each $25 shirt sold, $5 will go to lymphoma and leukemia research, according to the business.
Gov. Larry Hogan announced Monday that he has non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system that helps protect the body from infection and disease, and that it was advanced. But cancer doctors say that doesn't mean it's incurable.
With Gov. Larry Hogan announcing on Monday he has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer, the 58-year-old lieutenant governor will now almost certainly be thrust into the spotlight like never before as his boss undergoes weeks of treatment, including chemotherapy, and recovery.
On the first day after Gov. Larry J. Hogan told Maryland he has an aggressive form of cancer, he stayed away from the State House and worked from the governor's mansion in between medical appointments.
