Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) told The Washington Post on Tuesday that 95 percent of his cancer was gone -- a result that Hogan said "shocked" his doctors.
Hogan told the Post that he "aced" a screening after his second round of chemotherapy.
“Ninety-five percent is gone, disappeared, dead. I still have some remnants of the tumors, but it’s dead,” he said.
Hogan announced in late June that he had an aggressive, advanced cancer of the lymph-nodes. Having vowed to fight the sickness, Hogan has maintained a positive attitude throughout his chemotherapy treatment and shared frequent updates, including a picture of him grinning in his office after he shaved his head.
Hogan took office in January after he upset then-Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown in the Maryland gubernatorial election.,
