Everything You Need to Know about Biden’s Cancer ‘Moon Shot’

pathmedical Wellness

The Cancer Moon Shot is about to be relaunched. President Joe Biden announced that he is reigniting the initiative that he spearheaded when he was vice-president during the Obama administration. The plan is to bring a sense of urgency to the fight against cancer and better support to cancer patients and their families.

The aim is to reduce the death rate from cancer by at least 50% over the next 25 years. One of the efforts will be directed to get people back to routine cancer screenings, like mammograms and colonoscopies.

The cancer moonshot began back in 2016, when President Barack Obama announced the ambitious initiative. A few days later, Obama asked Congress for $1 billion to fund the program, and he put Biden, who had recently lost a son to brain cancer in charge. The new initiative will be headed by Danielle Carnival, PhD, who serves in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

In 2022 alone, there will be an estimated 1.9 million people diagnosed with cancer and more than 600,000 people in the U.S. will die (1).

The Cancer Moonshot will provide an important framework to help improve cancer prevention strategies, increase cancer screenings and early detection, reduce cancer disparities, and propel new lifesaving cures for patients with cancer.
