Maryland Gov. Hogan honored with corn maze

WASHINGTON — A family-owned farm is paying tribute to Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan with a massive corn-maze design that includes a picture of the governor.

Hogan, who has cancer, announced Tuesday on his Facebook page that 95 percent of his stage 3 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is gone.

“We had the idea of Maryland pride and then shortly after, the news broke of the governor’s diagnosis,” said Taylor Huffman, manager of Lawyer’s Farm.

The maze also features the state flag, an Oriole and the hashtag #HOGANSTRONG, which has frequently appeared on Twitter since the governor announced in June that he would be undergoing treatment.

Lawyer’s Farm, near the Pennsylvania border in Thurmont, Maryland, plans to open the maze Sept. 19 as part of an annual event.

“The corn maze stretches over a 35-acre cornfield with a total of 7.3 miles of trails,” Huffman said.

On Nov. 1, the farm will hold a donation day during which all proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society.  Last year, the farm generated nearly $12,000 for the American Brain Tumor Association.

“I aced my test,” said Hogan Tuesday.

“Ninety-five percent is gone, disappeared, dead. I still have some remnants of the tumors, but it’s dead,” Hogan said, adding that his team of doctors was shocked by the results.

The governor had 60 tumors — some the size of oranges — on his neck, chest, abdomen and groin.
