Breast Cancer Advocate

After four of her friends were diagnosed with breast cancer in 1993, Dr. Biden founded the Biden Breast Health Initiative in Delaware, which has educated more than 10,000 high school girls about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Dr. Biden and her husband have also served as the honorary co-chairs for the Global Race for the Cure in Washington, D.C.
