Federal tax records revealed that Joe Biden’s cancer charity did not allocate a single dollar towards cancer research, but directed the millions in donations the organization received into the pockets of staffers.

The reported president-elect and his wife Jill formed the Biden Cancer Initiative in 2017 to “develop and drive implementation of solutions to accelerate progress in cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis, research and care and to reduce disparities in cancer outcomes,” as a tribute to their late son Beau, who died of brain cancer in 2015.  

Despite the mission statement, the initiative didn’t spend a single dime to “accelerate progress,” instead directing the cash towards the exorbitant salaries and travel of former Washington, D.C. democratic aides at the helm.

IRS records show that the charity raked in $4,809,619 worth of donations during the fiscal years of 2017 and 2018, and spent an astonishingly high $3,070,301 on payroll during that period.  

The initiative was headed up by former Pfizer executive Gregory Simon, who previously led President Barack Obama’s White House’s cancer taskforce. The former health care lobbyist took in $224,539 annually in 2017, which almost doubled in 2018 to $429,850.

Vice President Danielle Carnival, the former chief of staff on Obama’s Cancer Moonshot Task Force, was paid $258,207 for her work at the charity in 2018.  

In two years, the initiative spent over $150k on travel and nearly $800k on conferences but reported $0 on grants distributed. 

Simon has said that the charity’s goal was to “accelerate treatment for all,” rather than hand out grants, but has been quoted touting the need for research funds. In a 2018 interview, he called on the National Institute of Health to “fund younger people. Fund riskier research. Fund more diverse research.”

After just two years of operation, the initiative’s urgency stalled out when the Bidens resigned from the board in April of 2019, so the former vice president could embark on his presidential campaign. The charity struggled to continue and eventually shuttered.  

“We tried to power through, but it became increasingly difficult to get the traction we needed to complete our mission,” said Simon.

This is how many Democrats have become millionaires. A non-Profit is used to pile up millions so they can shave off 75 to 90 percent for themselves. There needs to be a Law that would prosecute these animals for using others afflictions for their own gain.

Agreed, Harris will become “president” and because she is heavily supported by George Soros ( He stated in a interview posted on the internet that he was going to make her the “First woman of color to be president of the US” not a complete accurate quote but accurate as to my recollection of reading it. Wonder which office she will appoint this former NAZI sympathizer (GOOGLE read his wikipedia before you censor this reply.
