Jill Biden promotes 2 passions: military and cancer research
(Erin Schaff/The New York Times via AP, Pool)WASHINGTON – Jill Biden promoted two of her passions on Wednesday: military families and cancer research. The first lady also paid a virtual visit to the National Cancer Institute, which is part of the National Institutes of Health under the Department of Health and Human Services. AdHer interest in cancer research dates to the 1990s, when four of her friends were diagnosed with breast cancer in the same year. Jill Biden said cancer is a “human issue” that affects everyone regardless of political affiliation. She pledged the administration's continued support for the institute's research, including the Cancer Moonshot initiative that Joe Biden led as vice president.
