September 1st, 2015 by WCBC Radio

Governor Larry Hogan today issued a statewide proclamation announcing September as National Blood Cancer Awareness Month in Maryland. In addition, the governor announced that on Tuesday, September 15, the administration will host an American Red Cross blood drive at the State House, where a Bloodmobile will be set up to take donations.

“Going through my own treatments, I have witnessed the incredible strength and resolve in people who are fighting battles much more difficult than my own and their courage has been an inspiration to me,” said Governor Hogan. “This experience has shown me firsthand that cancer has no boundaries and affects nearly everyone in some way. Raising awareness is a critical factor in the fight against cancer and I encourage all Marylanders to join with me in supporting those battling this disease.”
