President Obama announced the national Cancer Moonshot initiative six months ago and put Vice President Joe Biden in charge of the push to eradicate the disease. On June 29, cancer researchers, doctors, funders, patients and advocates convene a summit in Washington, DC, Cleveland and dozens of other sites. You could call it "liftoff."
