Joe Biden got some bad news this week when it was revealed that his 46 year-old son Beau Biden has been hospitalized.
According to Fox News, the Vice President’s son is currently undergoing treatment at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Houston, Texas. He has been at the hospital since Tuesday.
Beau Biden, a former Delaware attorney general, has had a history of serious health problems. Back in 2010, he suffered a mild stroke but made a full recovery. Three years later in 2013, he underwent surgery at a Texas cancer center after doctors found a small lesion that had to be removed.
Last year, the younger Biden announced that he would not be seeking a third term as attorney general. Instead, he would be running for governor of Delaware in 2016. Then in January of this year, Wilmington law firm Grant & Eisenhofer, which recently announced that Biden would be expanding his work to help whistleblower.
Beau is the oldest of Joe Biden’s four living children. He is the son of Biden’s first wife, Neilia Hunter, who died along with her young daughter Naomi Biden in a 1972 car crash. He has been married to Hallie Biden since 2002, and they have two children named Hunter and Natalie.
While we can’t say we support Joe Biden, are prayers are with his family at this time and we hope his son makes a full recovery.
