Governor Larry Hogan and the Baltimore Orioles have formed a partnership to raise funds to fight pediatric cancer .
 
Hogan and the Orioles are working together on behalf of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Ronald McDonald House Charities.
 
Governor Hogan is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment to fight non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which was diagnosed in June.
 
Hogan says, "Since my diagnosis, I have met countless people fighting cancer, and many of them have been children with battles much more difficult than my own." 
 
Before Wednesday's home game against Boston, the Orioles intend to present a check for $50,000 to benefit the cause. They are also asking fans to be part of the effort.
 
Donations of any amount can be made by visiting www.orioles.com/charity .
 
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
