Elizabeth Edwards, the estranged wife of two-time U.S. presidential candidate John Edwards, is resting with her family at home after a brief hospitalization last week.
The breast cancer that she was first diagnosed with in 2004 has spread to her liver and doctors have advised her against further treatment.
Elizabeth, 61, said in a Facebook post Monday; “I have been sustained throughout my life by three saving graces, my family, my friends, and a faith in the power of resilience and hope.”
“These graces have carried me through difficult times and they have brought more joy to the good times than I ever could have imagined. The days of our lives, for all of us, are numbered.”
Elizabeth and John announced in January that they had separated after 32 years of marriage.
We wish Elizabeth and her family all the best during this difficult time.
