ANNAPOLIS, Md. --Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says he's lost hair but is killing cancer cells "like crazy."

Hogan's office released a photo Tuesday showing the bald governor wearing sunglasses with a wide smile outside the governor's reception room.

In a Facebook posting, Hogan says: "Thanks to my treatments, I'm sporting a new aerodynamic look." Hogan also writes that he's saving time by not having to wash or comb his hair or shave. The 59-year-old Republican governor adds that first lady Yumi Hogan says he's "still sexy."

Last week, Hogan finished his second five-day round of chemotherapy. On Tuesday he wrote: "I may be losing hair follicles, but I'm winning the battle as we kill cancer cells like crazy."

He announced the diagnosis for B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma on June 22.
