We were excited and honored that Dr. Jill Biden, Second Lady of the United States (2009 - 2017), joined 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 was our featured speaker during our VIP reception.
