Obamas visit Bidens after death of son, Beau
President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, have visited with Vice President Joe Biden and his family this afternoon following the death of Biden’s son. Beau Biden died of cancer yesterday at age 46.
He underwent surgery, radiation and chemotherapy after being diagnosed with brain cancer in August 2013. He suffered a recurrence this spring and was admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in May. At the time the vice president’s office declined to say why he was being treated.
