    Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has had follow-up chemotherapy treatment.

    Matt Clark, Hogan's spokesman, said the governor had the treatment on Monday at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore.

    Clark says Hogan will be required to undergo periodic chemotherapy treatments, as was announced in November. That's when Hogan announced he was in complete remission after months of treatment for B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

    At the November news conference, Hogan said: "Today doesn't mark the end of a journey for me, merely the end of one chapter.''

    Hogan, who is 59, was diagnosed in June. That was five months into his first term as governor. Over four months, Hogan underwent 30 days of 24-hour chemotherapy. He also had three surgeries and four spinal taps.
