Biden delivers Cancer Moonshot speech in Boston

President Joe Biden visited Boston on Sept. 12 to deliver his Cancer Moonshot speech at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Columbia Point. His speech was made on the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s 1962 Moonshot address, where Kennedy announced his goal to put a man on the moon. Honoring this legacy, Biden announced his own goal to “cure cancers once and for all.”
