WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton endorsed the Obama administration’s cancer moonshot initiative on Monday and pledged to continue its work if she is elected president.

The announcement preceded a campaign event that Clinton is holding with Vice President Joe Biden, who has led the effort after the death of his son Beau of brain cancer in 2015.


“As president, I will take up the charge. My administration will carry out the mission the Vice President has set,” Clinton said in a statement. “Together, we will seize this moment. Together, we will make cancer as we know it a disease of the past.”
