    What to Know

    • Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan announced his last chemo treatment today.

    • Hogan announced he was diagnosed with Stage 3 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in June 2015.

    After nearly a year and a half of battling cancer, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan shared on Facebook that he is getting his last chemotherapy treatment Monday.

    With a photo of Hogan smiling in a hospital chair, his post expressed his thoughts on his last treatment and thanked his supporters.

    "I can’t tell you how it feels to be getting my very last chemo treatment today," Hogan wrote in the post. "I could never have made it to this point without the amazing support of my family, friends and staff, along with an incredible team of doctors and nurses. I am humbled by the thousands of prayers and well wishes that I received from all around the world."

    In the post, Hogan also directed his thoughts to other cancer victims.

    "My heart, my thoughts, and my prayers go out to all the other victims of cancer and their families," he 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."

    He also said in the post that he was grateful to be 100 percent cancer-free and in complete remission.

    This is not the first time Hogan has shared his journey with cancer on Facebook.

    After announcing he was diagnosed with Stage 3 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in June 2015, he used Facebook to share updates. He shared that he was “feeling strong” during his aggressive chemo treatments and how he felt when the treatments caused him to start losing his hair.

    He wrote how “bald is beautiful.”
