Maryland Governor Larry Hogan showed he’s trying to battle cancer with a grin on Tuesday, posting a photo on social media of his newly hairless head with a joky caption.

“It looks like there is another white dome in the Annapolis State House!” he wrote on Facebook. The governor is undergoing treatment for non-Hodgkins lymphoma.

Hogan has remained in office since being diagnosed with the “very aggressive” form of cancer in June, just six months after taking office. “The new look is a bit of a shock at first, but to me, bald is beautiful,” he wrote, accompanied by the hashtag #HoganStrong.
