AUSTIN, Texas — Practically shouting for emphasis, former Vice President Joe Biden delivered an impassioned plea Sunday to “the techies” in the audience at the South by Southwest festival here to find a cure for cancer.
“You are the future,” Biden said in his first major speech on cancer since leaving the White House. “Many of you are developing technologies and innovations for purposes large and small that have nothing to do with cancer. But you can make a gigantic impact. Your ingenuity can have a profound impact on cancer.”
