Elizabeth Edwards diagnosed with breast cancer

Elizabeth Edwards diagnosed with breast cancer

Last Updated Thu, 04 Nov 2004 14:11:36 EST
BOSTON - The wife of Democratic vice-presidential candidate John Edwards was diagnosed with breast cancer on Wednesday, the same day the John Kerry campaign conceded it had lost its bid for the White House.

Elizabeth Edwards, 55, has invasive ductal cancer, said spokesperson David Ginsberg. It's the most common type of breast cancer.

"Elizabeth is as strong a person as I've ever known," John Edwards said in a statement. "Together, our family will beat this."

She found a lump in her right breast while on a campaign trip last week, but did not want to take time out from political appearances until after election day, which was Tuesday.

A Boston doctor did a needle biopsy on the lump on Wednesday and he confirmed the presence of cancer.

Ginsberg said more tests will be needed to determine the extent of the problem and plot a course of treatment.

Elizabeth and John Edwards have a three-year-old son, a five-year-old daughter, and a daughter who recently graduated from Princeton University. The couple's oldest son, Wade, died in a car accident in 1996.


Shitty deal

Having kids so late (they avoided talking much about for fear of sparking off a religious debate) probably didn't help. Real shame, though.
