Maryland governor says he remains cancer-free

ANNAPOLIS, Md. —Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said Thursday he remains cancer-free, with one more treatment scheduled before he hopes to have the disease behind him.

Hogan gave an update on his battle against B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma after signing an executive order that renews the state's Council on Cancer Control.

"I just had a PET scan done a few weeks ago," Hogan told reporters after the announcement. "I'm completely cancer-free, and I have one more treatment, and then I'll be hopefully done with it forever."

The governor was diagnosed in June 2015, five months into his first term. Over four months, he underwent 30 days of 24-hour chemotherapy. He also had three surgeries and four spinal taps. Hogan announced in November he was in remission.

"I'm feeling great, and you know I've been cancer-free for nearly a year, and I had a proposed plan to do one year of sort of maintenance chemotherapy," Hogan said. "Once a month I go in to get a little booster, just to make sure it doesn't recur."

That poor guy allowed Big Pharma to reconstruct his DNA.
Chemotherapy is poison. Period.

I feel sorry for the Governor.

It is a violation of the Hippocratic Oath to administer poison to a patient.

I don't think so.
Why do you?

No Oncologist will provide Chemo to their family members.

People are learning more and more about the lies told by Big Pharma.
They lie about everything.
Vaccines. Chemotherapy. Radiation Treatments.

Like a little bit of radiation is OK.
A little bit of mercury is OK.
Who are these criminals?

Stop believing them. They funded (now control) all of the medical schools.
The AMA is a criminal organization.
Ditto for the FDA.
