On June 26, 2017, Vice President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden launched the Biden Cancer Initiative, their new venture to continue the fight to make progress in cancer prevention, detection, treatment, and care. This initiative will “develop and drive implementation of solutions to accelerate progress in cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis, research and care, and reduce disparities in cancer outcomes”.
As an affiliate of the Cancer Support Community, we are proud to recognize our very own Kim Thiboldeaux, CEO, Cancer Support Community who will represent communities like Gilda’s Club as a member on the Biden Cancer Initiative Board of Directors. “The Biden Cancer Initiative offers people diagnosed with cancer and their loved ones hope that our nation’s leaders truly recognize the urgency that ending cancer as we know it demands. I am humbled to be a part of this important Initiative, and committed to bringing the patient voice to inform all that the organization endeavors to achieve,” says Ms. Thiboldeaux.
