CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKBN) – Vice President Joe Biden will be discussing cancer prevention and treatment in Cleveland on Thursday.

Summits will be held across the country on Thursday for the Cancer Moonshot initiative, which aims to bring people together to talk about their experiences and generate ideas for combating cancer.
