Ho­gan con­cludes cancer treat­ments

Baltimore Sun - - AROUND THE REGION -

Mary­land Gov. Larry Ho­gan said Mon­day he com­pleted chemo­ther­apy treat­ment for cancer, which had been in re­mis­sion since last year. Ho­gan posted on his Face­book page a photo of him­self flex­ing his biceps in a Bal­ti­more hospi­tal room, a chemo­ther­apy ma­chine feed­ing drugs into a port in his chest. “I can’t tell you how it feels to be get­ting my very last chemo treat­ment,” Ho­gan wrote. “I plan to make the most of ev­ery sin­gle day I am given, and I won’t stop fight­ing un­til a cure is dis­cov­ered for this ter­ri­ble dis­ease.” Ho­gan an­nounced in June 2015 that he had Stage 3 nonHodgkin’s lym­phoma, say­ing doc­tors had found more than 60 tu­mors through­out his body. He pub­licly doc­u­mented the 18-week treat­ment of the dis­ease, and an­nounced in Novem­ber 2015 that a scan showed he was “100 per­cent cancer­free.” The chemo­ther­apy, how­ever, con­tin­ued once a month in what doc­tors called a main­te­nance regime. On Mon­day, first lady Yumi Ho­gan snipped off the lime green “Ho­gan Strong” bracelet the Repub­li­can gov­er­nor has worn since his di­ag­no­sis, Ho­gan aides said. The gov­er­nor snipped off the bracelet worn by his wife. Ho­gan has un­der­gone treat­ment at the Univer­sity of Mary­land’s Greenebaum Cancer Cen­ter in Bal­ti­more.

Most of it, about 1.6 mil­lion gal­lons, was re­leased into an un­der­ground por­tion of the Jones Falls be­neath the 400 block of E. Pre­ston St. The sewage flowed from open­ings in the an­ti­quated net­work of pipes that were de­signed to re­lieve pres­sure when the sys­tem is
