ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says he has begun chemotherapy treatments for an aggressive form of cancer.

Hogan announced last week that he’s been diagnosed with an advanced stage of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He said the cancer responds well to treatment and his prognosis is good.

The Republican governor said in a Facebook post Sunday morning that he’s “made it through the first 24 hours of chemo.”

He says “things could not be going any better” and that he’s “feeling healthy and strong.” He adds, “We are killing cancer cells left and right and I have no side effects.”

Hogan has pledged to continue working while undergoing treatment for the disease. He has designated Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford to make decisions on his behalf if he becomes incapacitated.
