US President Barack Obama on Tuesday vowed to seek a cure for cancer as he set out plans to boost the nation's health care and pump money into reforming the creaking system.
Obama told Congress in his maiden speech that his health care plan would "launch a new effort to conquer a disease that has touched the life of nearly every American by seeking a cure for cancer in our time.
"And it makes the largest investment ever in preventive care, because that is one of the best ways to keep our people healthy and our costs under control."
