July 11, 2019 — WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Biden Cancer Initiative today announced it would suspend all operations.
The Biden Cancer Initiative, which launched on June 26, 2017, is an independent nonprofit organization that was built on the goals of the White House Cancer Moonshot program created by President Barack Obama and led by Vice President Joe Biden. The organization’s programs were grounded on Vice President Biden and Dr. Jill Biden’s firm commitment to ending cancer as we know it.
“For more than two years, the Biden Cancer Initiative has focused on creating and implementing programs and platforms that accelerated progress against cancer,” said Greg Simon, president of the Biden Cancer Initiative. “Today, we are suspending activities given our unique circumstances. We remain personally committed to the cause, but at this time will have to pause efforts. We thank the community for their incredible response to our mission to improve the cancer journey for patients and to improve outcomes for all patients for generations to come.”
