Cancer 'Moonshot'

Feb 18, 2016

In his State of the Union Address, President Obama outlined a lofty challenge for the nation: finding a cure for cancer. Vice President Biden is in charge of what has been dubbed the “cancer moonshot,” and he was recently in North Carolina to look at the region’s contribution to the effort. We get reaction to this presidential challenge from some of the people in the Queen City who are on the front lines of the treating and finding a cancer cure.
