Gov. Larry Hogan delivered some very bad news on Monday: he’s been diagnosed with an advanced stage of B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, but it’s possible that the cancer will be treatable, perhaps even curable.

Dr. Kevin J. Cullen, an oncology professor at the University of Maryland, spoke to the Baltimore Sun about B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and said, unlike other forms of cancer, it may still be curable at an advanced stage. Seventy percent of patients live at least five years, and chemotherapy treatments have advanced in the last 10 years.

Hogan said his would undergo chemo for 18 weeks, during which he would continue to work.
