Hogan Takes Pediatric Cancer Patients to Ravens Stadium to Raise Awareness

Gov. Larry Hogan has inspired many with his optimism since he announced his cancer diagnosis in June — but he says he himself was inspired by young cancer patients he met during his chemotherapy sessions at University of Maryland Medical Center. And Sunday, he took four of them to the Ravens-Bengals game to raise awareness about blood cancers.

The governor posed for photos with fans before the game. Later, he and the kids were brought out onto the field during the first quarter, where he pumped his fist and waved his hand to cheers from the crowd.

“The children, who approach their cancer diagnosis with unimaginable courage and positivity, have been especially inspiring,” Hogan wrote in a statement. “They are fighting a battle much more difficult than my own, and I am honored to have the opportunity to raise awareness with these extraordinary kids.”

Earlier in September, which is Blood Cancer Awareness Month, Hogan appeared with children at an Orioles game and a Redskins game.
