Terrible: New Maryland Governor Larry Hogan Has "Advanced," "Aggressive" Cancer

This disease must be eradicated.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan disclosed Monday that he has been diagnosed with late stage 3 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, which he described as "a very advanced and very aggressive" form of cancer.

The 59-year-old Republican, who was sworn into office in January after winning an upset victory over then-Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown (D), described the diagnosis as a hurdle he was determined to surmount.

"I'm going to face this challenge with the same energy and determination that I've relied on to climb every hill and to overcome every obstacle that Iíve faced in my life," he said, with his wife, Yumi, standing by his side.

The survival rate for non-Hodgkins lymphoma is relatively high. Physician Kevin Cullen, director of the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center, said about 70 percent of patients with the disease are still alive after five years.

Cullen said most cases of non-Hodgkins lymphoma are discovered at stage 3, when the tumors are more pronounced, just as Hoganís was.

"This is really what we see for the vast majority of patients," he said.

The disease is usually treated by chemotherapy, not surgery or radiotherapy. The Lieutenant governor (also a Republican) will do a lot of work while Governor Hogan is in therapy.

Prayers.
