Gov. Larry Hogan wrote Tuesday that he is feeling “really strong” as he enters the final 24 hours of a four-day cycle of chemotherapy at the University of Maryland Medical Center.

Hogan began treatment on Sunday, a day earlier than what he announced last week.
Hogan was diagnosed with an aggressive form of non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. He announced last week that tests showed the cancer had not spread to his bone marrow and that he was in stage three of the disease.
Doctors have said that the form of lymphoma afflicting the governor is highly treatable at that stage and said Hogan has good reason to remain optimistic.
This is the first of six cycles of treatment that the governor said he will undergo over the course of 18 weeks.
Hogan is expected to return to his residence at Government House in Annapolis tomorrow.
