Son of the vice president of the United States of America and Former Delaware Attorney, General Beau Biden, died on Saturday after battling brain cancer at the age of 46, the vice president said.
“The entire Biden family is saddened beyond words,” Vice President Biden said in a statement released by the White House.
“We know that Beau’s spirit will live on in all of us, especially through his brave wife, Hallie, and two remarkable children, Natalie and Hunter,” he said.
Beau Biden who had announced last year he planned to run for governor of Delaware in 2016, was diagnosed with brain cancer in August 2013 and underwent surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. After getting a “a clean bill of health” in November of that year, his cancer recurred in the spring of 2015, the vice president’s office said.
