President Loeschke diagnosed with cancer, expects full recovery
Towson President Maravene Loeschke sent an email to faculty and staff Friday afternoon disclosing she was diagnosed with cancer of the adrenal gland.
The cancer was found at an early stage and Loeschke has already undergone surgery, according to the email. She will receive six weeks of external radiation therapy.
“Doctors are confident that she will receive a full recovery,” Marina Cooper, the Deputy Chief of Staff in the President’s Office said.
Loeschke will continue her regular work schedule and will be around campus next week per usual.
“I feel great and have no symptoms of any kind,” she said in the email. “Both Dick and I appreciate your support and understanding during this period. My desire is to address the medical issue and to continue leading the University that I love.”
