ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- After eight weeks of intensive treatment, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says 95 percent of his cancer is gone.

The Republican governor said he still has some remnants of the dozens of tumors doctors found two months ago, "but it's dead."

Hogan has remained active through his treatment for B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which includes five-day stays at University of Maryland Medical Center every three weeks. But the self-described workaholic and "touchy-feely kind of guy" says he's had to cut back his hours and avoid contact with people because of his weakened immune system.

Hogan says doctors were shocked by his results and they hope his next scan shows all his tumors are gone. Regardless of the results, Hogan will need to complete all six rounds of his 18-week treatment.
