One of President Biden’s passions is destroying cancer… that’s why he’s bringing back the Moonshot.

According to the Associated Press, Biden is setting a 25-year timeline for achieving the program’s goal, part of his broader effort to end cancer as we know it. The goal is to reduce cancer deaths by 50-percent over the next 25 years.

The American Cancer Society estimates that there will be 1,918,030 new cancer cases and 609,360 cancer deaths this year. What Biden is aiming to do is essentially save more than 300,000 lives annually from the disease.
