Biden’s son at cancer center

WEDNESDAY, AUG. 21, 2013

WILMINGTON, Del. – Beau Biden, the Delaware attorney general and the son of Vice President Joe Biden, is being evaluated at a cancer center in Texas, according to people with knowledge of his condition.

Two people familiar with the situation said Biden was being evaluated Tuesday at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, one of the leading cancer centers in the nation.

Biden’s wife and other family members, including the vice president, were with him.

Beau Biden, who suffered a mild stroke in 2010, felt weak and disoriented on the night of Aug. 14 after driving to Indiana for a family vacation, said Jason Miller, a spokesman for the Delaware Department of Justice.

Biden, 44, was initially admitted to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago and traveled the next day to a Philadelphia hospital to consult with his doctor. He was discharged and spent last weekend at home in Wilmington.

Miller said that Biden was undergoing testing in Houston to determine the cause of his symptoms.
