President Joe Biden will be visiting Boston on Monday! He will be delivering remarks on the Cancer Moonshot at the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s “Moonshot” speech which will be held at the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum.
Biden lost his son Beau Biden in 2015 of brain cancer and launched the cancer moonshot the following year while vice president.
Back in February, Biden set bigger goals for the project, including cutting the rate of cancer deaths in half in the coming 25 years and improving treatments and quality of life for those with cancer and their caregivers.
Biden is also expected to make remarks on the “unprecedented investments in his Bipartisan Infrastructure Law that are building a better America.”
The $1 trillion infrastructure bill, signed in November, will send Massachusetts $4.2 billion for road repairs, $2.5 billion for public transportation, $1 billion to repair more than 470 unsafe bridges and $1 billion to remove lead pipes.
Well, that’s good news!
