BOSTON (AP) - Jill Biden, the wife of Vice President Joe Biden, will visit Massachusetts this week to speak at the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center’s 2016 One Hundred Gala.

The annual gala is scheduled for Tuesday evening at the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel. The event honors 100 people and groups for their commitment to the fight against cancer. Last year’s gala was attended by nearly 1,000 people and raised $2.1 million to support the cancer center.

Jill Biden will also visit the PatientsLikeMe headquarters in Cambridge on Tuesday. The online network’s mission is to empower patients, improve their outcomes and contribute data for research.

Joe Biden’s oldest son, former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, died of brain cancer last year.
