Biden Cancer Initiative Names Cancer Support Community CEO to Board of Directors

The Biden Cancer Initiative announced Kim Thiboldeaux, CEO of the Cancer Support Community, along with other national leaders in the cancer field, has been selected to serve on the Initiative’s Board of Directors. The Cancer Support Community is a member of the Comprehensive Cancer Control National Partnership.

“The Biden Cancer Initiative is honored to have Kim join our board. As head of the largest professionally-led nonprofit network of cancer support organizations worldwide, Kim has a wealth of knowledge about the true experiences of cancer patients and their loved ones. Understanding the cancer experience from the patient’s perspective is essential to improving care—and caring—for cancer patients. Her personal experiences will help us achieve the Biden Cancer Initiative’s goals; they remind us to never lose sight that our work is in the service of all people who have been diagnosed with this life-threatening disease,” said Greg Simon, President of the Biden Cancer Initiative.

“It is an honor and a privilege to be asked to serve on the Board of the Biden Cancer Initiative,” commented Thiboldeaux. “No one knows better the importance of this work than Vice President Biden. His leadership and passion, combined with his personal experience as a caregiver and a father who lost his son to cancer, makes him the perfect person to continue this vital work to end cancer as we know it.”
