U.S. Vice Presidents son dies of Brain Cancer at 46
USA Created: 31 May 2015
Joseph "Beau" Biden III, the son of Vice President Joe Biden, has died of brain cancer, the White House announced Saturday evening. He was 46.

"More than his professional accomplishments, Beau measured himself as a husband, father, son and brother," Joe Biden said in a statement, calling him "quite simply, the finest man any of us have ever known."

Beau Biden served as Delaware's attorney general for eight years from 2007 to 2015. In 2010, he suffered a mild stroke, but recovered and went back to work.

Three years later, he began receiving treatment to remove a small lesion in his brain. After surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, he was given a clean bill of health by his doctor in November 2013.

According to the vice president's office, Biden suffered a recurrence in Spring of 2015. He was being treated at the Walter Reed Military Medical Center, where he was admitted in May. He passed away Saturday surrounded by his entire family, the vice president's office said.
