Tucson teams up to fight cancer for Biden Cancer Summit

TUCSON – Former Vice President Joe Biden called on the nation to team up to fight cancer.

Friday, September 21, 2018 was the first “Biden Cancer Summit.”

Nearly four-hundred groups held events in connection with Joe and Jill Biden’s event in Washington, D.C.

In Tucson, Anita “Sarge” Kellman, the founder of Beat Cancer Boot Camp, held an event.

The events were to educate people about what’s going on in the cancer community.

Kellman invited guests to speak at the event. They spoke about topics ranging from how to deal with a diagnosis to cancer research to care.

“Bringing new ideas, new research, and new treatments out to the community,” Anita “Sarge” Kellman said. “To know about it is so important.”

The national summit was created by the Bidens who lost their son Beau in 2015.

Kellman said she will step to host the event in Tucson every year.
