(CNN) - Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Joe Biden is cancelling his campaign events for Saturday and Sunday as his mother-in-law battles a serious illness.
The Senator from Delaware's campaign spokesman, David Wade, put out a statement saying "the campaign has cancelled Sen. Biden's schedule today and tomorrow because of a serious illness in Jill Biden's family. Hospice has advised the Bidens to remain close by, and we appreciate everyone's respect for the family's privacy."
Wade is referring to Biden's wife's mother, Bonny Jacobs, who is in a hospice in Pennsylvania.
Biden was scheduled to speak in Washington D.C. and then attend a fund-raiser in the nation's capitol Saturday night. Sunday he was expected to campaign in Virginia.

Didn't someone make a comment about Sarah having family obligations? My best regards to Senator Biden and his family, no one should be expected to forget about their families, inorder to serve their country.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Sen. Biden and Family,
Biden did great in the debate against stupid Ms. Alaska!!!
You and you family is in our prayers, Sen & Mrs Biden.
I hope nasty and ditriest attacks without any base by lipsticks used by McShame will leave Senator Biden respecting this as a "Family Privacy"
We join hands and our prayers for his mother-in-law and his family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you Senator Biden. May God brings you and your family comfort. God bless you.
Wanted to compliment you on the debate. You won hands down, with a very professional, and kind way considering the very unqualified opponent for the national stage.
My husband, 3 years ago had hospice (a wonderful group) at our home, so my heart goes out to your family at this most difficult time.
My prayers are there for both Joe, Jill and the Biden family members during this difficult time.
God bless and I hope things turn out better than expected.
Best wish's to you and your family Mr. Biden
May GOD speed her recovery as we pray for you and your family. GOD BLESS
I have added I was Serving my Country In Kenya at the time.. It was not my fault I never made it Home.. That was back in 1959...
STILL DON'T WANY ANY SYMPATHY... More to do WITH WHT THIS ADD IN AN ELECTION YEAR????????????????
it is clear that Senator Biden cares for his family and is putting his families needs first, unlike Sarah Palin who seems to enjoy parading her family and all their problems around for everyone to see.
Which of these two candidates is exhibiting a Christ like life?
Which would you call a Christain?
May our Lord, Jesus, comfort the Biden family
May she get well soon.
