Gov. Larry Hogan has officially ended nearly a year and a half of cancer treatments. 
 
The governor posted on his official Facebook page Monday morning that he got his last chemotherapy treatment. 
 
"I could never have made it to this point without the amazing support of my family, friends and staff, along with an incredible team of doctors and nurses. I am humbled by the thousands of prayers and well wishes that I received from all around the world," he wrote. "And I am deeply grateful to be 100% cancer free and in complete remission. My heart, my thoughts, and my prayers go out to all the other victims of cancer and their families. I plan to make the most of every single day I am given, and I won't stop fighting until a cure is discovered for this terrible disease." 
 
The governor said a year ago he was in remission, but his doctor recommended preventive chemotherapy treatments afterwards. 
 
No cancer has popped up in the last year, so Hogan is officially done with treatments. 
 
Hogan announced in June 2015 that he had been diagnosed with stage 3 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
