Elizabeth Edwards’ Cancer Diagnosis
It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of John Edwards the politician; but I bear him no personal ill will, and I’m saddened to hear of his wife’s diagnosis of cancer. LGF wishes Elizabeth Edwards success in her fight against the disease, and restored health.
WASHINGTON - Democrat John Edwards said Thursday that his presidential campaign “goes on strongly” in the face of a repeat cancer diagnosis for his wife, Elizabeth, a somber development that thrust his White House bid into uncharted territory.
The couple revealed that Elizabeth Edwards’ breast cancer had spread to her bone during a news conference designed to reassure the public about the prognosis for her health and his candidacy.
“The bottom line is, her cancer is back,” said John Edwards, the 2004 vice presidential nominee and former senator, at a news conference in their hometown of Chapel Hill, N.C. “We are very optimistic about this, because having been through some struggles together in the past, we know that the key is to keep your head up and keep moving and be strong.”
