Biden: It’s possible to extend lives of cancer patients
Outgoing Untied States Vice President Joe Biden opened up about how cancer affected his life.
DAVOS - Outgoing Untied States Vice President Joe Biden has told the World Economic Forum in Davos that it may be possible to extend the lives of people with cancer, simply through having doctors in different disciplines working more closely together.
He's also opened up about how cancer affected his life.
Biden says the fight against cancer is about extending people's lives, even if we can't beat cancer comprehensively.
“How many times have you heard a patient ask a doctor to extend their lives?”
He was also able to poke fun at his own situation, while introducing a colleague.
Biden lost his son Beau Biden to cancer two years ago.
