Obama called Hogan over cancer diagnosis

President Barack Obama was apparently among the many well-wishers who called Gov. Larry Hogan after he was diagnosed with cancer last year.

Hogan mentioned the gesture in passing Monday at the White House during the National Governors Association's winter meeting, according to a transcript of the call.

The governor briefly thanked Obama for reaching out before asking Obama if he would commit to supporting an effort by governors to reform regulations. Obama said he "absolutely" would.

Hogan was diagnosed in June with Stage 3 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and underwent six rounds of chemotherapy treatment last summer. He announced in October that he was in remission.   While undergoing treatment, Hogan received many public expressions of support, including from Pope Francis.
