John Edwards’ estranged wife Elizabeth said to be in final stage of cancer fight
Examiner ^ | October 17, 2010 | Marc Schenker

Democrat John Edwards’ estranged wife Elizabeth is said to be in the final stages of her cancer struggle. The attorney and cancer activist who used to be a stalwart presence beside John Edwards, the one-time, presidential hopeful who always claimed there were "two Americas," now admits that she is losing her fight with advanced breast cancer, according to both reports from insider sources as well as her own comments. Separated from John since earlier this year, Elizabeth was cheated on by her estranged, Democrat husband at the darkest hour in her life—when her breast cancer had returned and was determined to be incurable. Now bald, wearing a wig, and undergoing new medications to desperately stave off her cancer, Elizabeth’s final last years have been miserable to say the least, much of that, the fault of her estranged, Democrat husband and full-time trial attorney, John.

I hope God allows her to be pain free and at peace.

Prayers for Mrs. Edwards.

If it is not the Lord’s will that she defeat her disease, then may He grant her grace and mercy in her untimely departure. May He watch over her children and assure that they have no bitterness.

I pray that Mrs. Edwards is one of His own, so at least she has the comfort of “going home” when her life’s work is over.

May her husband repent and give himself to the Lord’s work.

Paryers and peace to her.

Her putative husband deserves to rot/burn in hell.

I don’t wish any pain or misery on her. This is a horrible way to go.

Her having cancer does not make her noble or honorable. She stood by her husband for years while he was a trial lawyer and politician. They are both leaches on our country, making millions off the misery of others.

I agree with you, on all counts.

That said, some kids are about to lose their mother at far too young an age.

What I hope is that, in some of her contemplative moments, she thinks about some of the doctors her husband sued, which earned them their fortune. As she is one with a terrible, serious illness, hoping for any kind of a cure, regardless of how risky or elusive, I hope she sees the damage her husband did. Only God Almighty knows how many medical careers John Edwards destroyed.

May God have mercy on Mrs. Edwards and the children.

Your perspective is a helpful one.
John Edwards unscrupulously destroyed the medical profession in North Carolina. He made hundreds of millions on false and misleading claims of medical malfeasance. His contempt for human decency extended to his own family, his wife and children. He and his wife are reaping a whirlwind of pain and torment.
Troubles come to all of us. It is not good to revel in another’s anguish but it is instructive to see that none of us are above the torments of the world.

John’s only concern right now is making sure he’s the sole beneficiary on her life insurance policy. What a low-life scumbag he is.

"I have stage 4 cancer and I’m dying." If true, this was the first, confirmed public statement by the former confidante of failed, presidential candidate John that both realized and acknowledged that her prognosis for surviving her breast cancer struggle was gloomy, indeed. In fact, she told the same luncheon audience that her outlook would be quite "dim unless there are great breakthroughs."

Johnny must be down in the polls somewhere.

Agreed. And if you read “Game Change” she is a raging bitch. I don’t wish cancer on anyone but I am not going to fake sympathy for her.

“I hope she sees the damage her husband did”

We all die. How many of us will die a more painful difficult death because of lawsuits generated by people like her husband. IMO she helped with the damage. She certainly knew it was occurring and stuck by her hubby.

“May God have mercy on Mrs. Edwards and the children.”

May God have mercy on this entire family.

He might end up in jail because of his legal problems. Months ago the tabloids were reporting that he was staying at a house on the beach and hitting on a female bartender.

I agree, I hope she has a gentle exit.

However, she chose to marry that scumbag and stay with him for years. She also was a 50:50 member of that team when he was lying and cheating to get his money. She also a full partner when he was lying and cheating to become POTUS.

May she have peace.

I worry for her children. With Elizabeth gone, they will certainly go to John. He is awfully self absorbed. Is he still seeing Reille? She was selfish enough to have an affair with him knowing he was married and Elizabeth had cancer. She knew she was hurting Elizabeth and she knew she was hurting the kids. I do hope she won’t be their new “mother”.

I’d not rely on Game Change for much—unsourced & written by the son of a George Soros employee.

Prayers for Elizabeth Edwards.

You’re right we are better than that.

However I don’t have much sympathy for people willing to sacrifice America and all of us in order to feed their desire for power and money.

The power broker people know what they are doing. I for one hope they all repent or die.

I have no sympathy for them, either, but I'm not going to spit on them or laugh as they die. That is what they do. I will just let them die, and know that God takes good notes.

With her cancer, it showed John Edwards for the person who he is ! A real P.O.S.

Which is why I agreed with you.

Wonder if John, Rielle, and little Francis will be attending the funeral?
