Former Vice President and presidential hopeful Joe Biden promised to cure cancer in a campaign speech in Iowa on Tuesday:

"You know, a lot of you understand that, what loss is and when loss occurs, you know that, people come up to you and tell you, ‘I understand if you lose a husband, a wife, a son, a daughter, a family member.’ And lots of times you feel like saying, you know, ‘I know how you're feeling,’ but hadn't. You look at them, you know they mean well, you have no idea how I feel.

But when it happens to you, you know. That's why I've worked so hard in my career to make sure that I promise you, if I'm elected president, you're going to see the single most important thing that changes America, because we're going to cure cancer.

“But, that's another issue."

Cancer is a personal issue for Biden, who lost a son to the disease, The Hill reports:

“Curing the disease has become a primary focus for Biden since his son, Beau Biden, died in 2015 of an aggressive form of brain cancer. He oversaw the “Cancer Moonshot” during his time as vice president in the Obama administration.”
