“Recently, I was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. My first treatment will begin on Monday,” Dole said in a statement.

“While I certainly have some hurdles ahead, I also know that I join millions of Americans who face significant health challenges of the own,” Dole, 97, added.

Biden and Dole met in the Senate where President Biden spent more than three decades before President Obama picked him as his vice president.

Robert Joseph Dole is a retired American politician and attorney who represented Kansas in the U.S. Senate from 1969 to 1996. He was the Republican Leader of the U.S. Senate during the final 11 years of his tenure.

Prior to his 27 years in the Senate, he served in the United States House of Representatives from 1961 to 1969.

He was also the Republican presidential nominee in the 1996 election and the vice presidential nominee in the 1976 election.
