President Obama getting ready to do battle to find a cancer cure.

FOX's Jill Nado is in Washington with that story:

In his State of the Union address, President Obama called for a landing on the moon type effort to come up with cures for cancer, to be led by Vice President Joe Biden. Now a big step in that direction as the President is about to ask Congress for $755 million in cancer research money.

The President's already established a cancer task force with Biden at the helm. Biden said his goal is to make a decade worth of advances in five years and eventually end cancer.
