Elizabeth Edwards, the estranged wife of politico John Edwards, has died today from a resurgence of her cancer. It was just announced yesterday that her breast cancer had metastasized onto her liver, and that there was nothing more her doctors could do for her.
Elizabeth was at home in North Carolina surrounded by her family. They released this statement
“Today we have lost the comfort of Elizabeth’s presence but she remains the heart of this family,” the Edwards family says in a statement. “We love her and will never know anyone more inspiring or full of life.”
“On behalf of Elizabeth we want to express our gratitude to the thousands of kindred spirits who moved and inspired her along the way,” the statement adds. “Your support and prayers touched our entire family.” [People]
My heart breaks for Elizabeth’s family and I feel their loss in every fiber of my being.
