Elizabeth Edwards Children, (AP) – Elizabeth Edwards during the last six years has seen her husband’s presidential ambitions thwarted, retired from public life that their marriage disintegrated on his case, and then appeared to advocate changes in the system Canadian health while dealing with cancer ravaging his body.
Now, doctors told the 61-years old and his family that the treatment will do no good, and never the public persona, Edwards thanked his supporters on his Facebook page Monday, perhaps a few weeks of the disease taking his life.
“The days of our life, we all are numbered,” wrote Edwards. “We know that. And yes, there certainly are times when we are not able to muster as much strength and patience as we like. This is called being human. But I found that the mere fact of living with hope and the daily effort to have a positive impact in the world, the days I have are of all the more meaningful and valuable. And for this I am grateful. ”
The Edwards family said in a statement that doctors told them that the treatment for his cancer would be counterproductive. A friend, who was among those who met with Edwards in North Carolina to his home, told The Associated Press that Edwards is seriously ill.
The friend said Edwards was briefly hospitalized last week and received treatment, but doctors have now told her she can have up to two months of life left. The friend spoke on condition of anonymity because of the disclosure of personal data.
Edwards ex-husband, former presidential candidate John Edwards and their three children were with him at home in Chapel Hill, the friend said. In January, Edwards separated from her husband of 30 years after admitting an extramarital affair and fathering a child with a campaign videographer.
Her sister, brother, nieces, nephews, former campaign advisers and other friends were also present. The friend said Elizabeth Edwards was not in pain and in good humor despite the seriousness of his condition.
Edwards has focused on reforming the country’s system of providing health care to a single-payer process designed to serve all.
She has often wondered aloud about the fate of those who faced the same kind of physical struggle, but without his personal fortune. Captivated by the stories of those who could not afford health care coverage, Edwards told passionately round tables in the writings on the web and on Capitol Hill.
“What I’m really happy is that I still have a seat at the table to talk about health care – I have the strength to do that and I also have a seat at the table” Edwards said at the event in October 2008.
Edwards shared with the public the most intimate struggles of his bouts with cancer, writing and talking about the pain of losing her hair, efforts to ensure our children’s future and their mother issues dragged on the number of days she had left live.
She continued that the public face on Monday.
“It is not possible to put into words the love and gratitude I feel for all those who have and continue to support and inspire me every day for you, I say simply:. You know,” Edwards, a popular figure among Democratic activists, wrote about the Facebook post.
Edwards struggled against breast cancer since 2004, diagnosed in the last days of the campaign when her husband was the Democratic nominee for vice president.
The John Kerry-John Edwards lost ticket of outgoing President George W. Bush. John Edwards has launched a second bid for the White House in 2007. The edwardsi decided to continue the campaign after doctors told Elizabeth that her cancer had spread, but he lost the nomination to Barack Obama.
Edwards was more of a political spouse. She was chief adviser and strategist to her husband’s campaigns for the Senate and later as president.
The edwardsi met in law school. Cate daughter followed her parents into a career in law while his son Wade was killed in a traffic accident when he was 16. Elizabeth Edwards had two children later, giving birth to Emma Claire at age 48 and Jack 50.
Elizabeth Edwards also helped out in his recovery from the death of his son. She writes in his memoir on the 2006 burst into tears on the floor of a grocery store after watching Wade’s favorite soda – Cherry Coke – a few months after his death.
