We are excited and honored to announce that Dr. Jill Biden, Second Lady of the United States (2009 - 2017), will be joining us at Rock the Ribbon on Saturday, October 20!
Through the Biden Cancer Initiative, Dr. Biden has been on the forefront of a national effort to inject a sense of urgency into cancer research and care and to deliver better outcomes for patients.
In 1993, after four of her friends were diagnosed with breast cancer, Dr. Biden started the Biden Breast Health Initiative in Delaware, which has educated more than 10,000 high school girls about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. And after Dr. Biden and former Vice President Joe Biden lost their son Beau to brain cancer in 2015, they helped push for a national commitment to ending cancer as we know it. That commitment, which started as the White House Cancer Moonshot, is now the Biden Cancer Initiative.
Dr. Biden will be our featured speaker during our VIP reception beginning at 6PM. All VIP ticket holders and sponsors have access to the VIP reception. Sponsors at the $15,000 level and higher also have the opportunity to participate in a photo opportunity with Dr. Biden.
