Joe Biden: The fight against cancer is bipartisan

"Given half the chance, they've never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, let the country down", said Biden, who noted he was known as the "White House Optimist" during the last eight years.

Addressing the audience, many of whom include techies and innovators, Biden said: "Many of you are developing technologies and innovations for purposes large and small, fun and serious, entertaining and lifesaving, that have nothing to do with cancer - but you could make a big impact". After leaving office at the end of January, Biden unveiled plans for the Biden Foundation, which will focus on advancing cancer research, helping military families and preventing violence against women.

Biden told the crowd about advancements in cancer research and the ways he's been able to bring healthcare professionals together to further treatment options.

"I'm confident that the new administration, once it gets organized, and I'm not being facetious, will be as enthusiastic of ending cancer as we know it".

When they announced the Moonshot initiative, Biden said they chose to take a new approach to tackling cancer, adding that president Nixon declared the "war on cancer" in 1971. A year after President Barack Obama took the South by Southwest stage, Biden and wife Dr. Jill Biden arrived in Austin to appeal to the festival's technology entrepreneurs, developers, and engineers: "You're the future", Biden said. "Some of the most innovative minds in the world are sitting in front of me", Biden said.

His one-hour speech included his vision for a time when people are provided with the right treatment and children can be vaccinated against certain types of cancers. "I pledge before you and all the world I will do everything in my power to work with the administration". Biden did, however, note that the current administration's failure to embrace the concept of global warming "frustrates" him.

Joe Biden's son Beau died in 2015 from brain cancer. He referenced John F. Kennedy's original initiative to put a human being on the moon: "He talked about the effort to go to the moon as a commitment that the American people had made and were unwilling to postpone".

He remains convinced that Democrats and Republicans will work together to fund research even if they're at odds about nearly everything else.

"The only bipartisan thing left in America is the fight against cancer", he said in explaining his work with the Cancer Initiative, a program following the White House Moonshot Task Force Biden led as vice president.

On an earlier panel Sunday, Greg Simon, director of the Biden Cancer Initiative, said, "We're not trying to start another war on cancer, we're trying to finish that one".

"I had one regret". "We can solve all these problems", Biden said.

Ever since Donald Trump pulled the biggest upset in U.S. political history, and quite frankly even before that, the divide among Democrats and Republicans, progressives and conservatives, has escalated into a civil war of words, and threatens to stop any sort of progress in getting anything through Congress.
