Joe Biden tells Stephen Colbert about the cancer moonshot

Two years ago today Beau Biden, son of Vice President Joe Biden, died of brain cancer. A little over a year later I lost my youngest brother, also to brain cancer.

Last year President Obama named Joe Biden to head a cancer moonshot, an effort to accelerate research into preventing and curing all forms of cancer. Below is a clip from Biden’s appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last December during which he described the initiative and the bipartisan support it received. It’s informative and moving.


Some members of the Republican Party want to cut funds for scientific and medical research. I hope they don’t succeed.
