"I have stage 4 cancer and I'm dying."
With those brave words, ELIZABETH EDWARDS acknowledged for the first time that she is losing her battle with advanced breast cancer.
In a dramatic public statement to a luncheon audience on Oct. 7, courageous Elizabeth confirmed a recent ENQUIRER article that her treatments have not been successful.
"The outlook for me is pretty dim unless there are great breakthroughs," said the 61-year-old estranged wife of disgraced presidential candidate John Edwards.
In The ENQUIRER issue that went on sale Sept. 23, we reported that Elizabeth appeared to be "losing her brave battle" and seemed to have lost at least 20 pounds in recent weeks.
Elizabeth revealed she'd been forced to undergo a new round of chemotherapy and spent five hours at the hospital the previous day.
"I'm done," she said.

One thing I have learned about National Enquirer over the years is that if they say you’re dying, I don’t care how good you feel, you’d better start pricing grave plots.
God, please bless her and her children...
I cannot stand her or her hubby. Having said that I do not wish this on anyone and hope her final days go by best they can.
Millions of people have cancer, why do we keep going back to this one woman’s plight? Seriously.
I don’t care for the woman, and even less for the pitiful piece of dung she used to run with, but this is very sad, a look at someone facing true mortality. May she find peace.
The NE publishes sensational stories. That's the gig. Nevertheless the editors vet their stories better than most dailies and exponentially better than the New York Times or Dan Rather.
They are hard core at the Enquirer, they pay the friends of the rich and/or famous to spill the beans, they are very good at it, and have only been wrong a few times.
It is said that after they headlined “Johnny Carson to get Divorced”, that Johnny considered suing them for slander.... but decided to go ahead and get divorced as he had planned.
I agree with that. I just can’t help but feel overwhelming sorrow for this poor woman
This POS women along with her POS husband wanted to foist their dysfunctional personal lives on America.....F her.
A loving spouse would be by her side to love and assist through this transition but in this case, I guess not...
Seriously - this is as sad as any battle with cancer, no more no less. Just a lot more public. She promoted her husband's campaign after she knew of his affair and what could come of that. Seemed that was a bit of shameless power seeking. But this is not the time for critical evaluation. Even if she had been healthy - the burden of her husband's betrayal was a nasty thing to have to endure. Much harder when you knew your life expectancy was limited and there would be less time to help your children deal with it (and it takes children a long time to deal with it.) Never cared for her as a political advocate or as a lawyer, but will hope for a miraculous reversal, nonetheless.
She is probaly pissed that she wont live long enough to see the breck girl go to prison.She is in for a very painful exit and I will leave it at that.
Amen. The poor children have not had the best parents. May the Lord bless and protect them.
I feel very sad for her and her family. God bless them.
Well, then Liz Taylor must still be plot shopping after 40 years.
>>God, please bless her and her children...<<
This shows two things: 1 John Edwards is not a loving spouse. 2 John Edwards is not a caring person.
Scares me this idiot came close to being president. Worse though is Zero being president.
This woman still needs to get rid of the idols of her heart, and find Christ. If she will somehow do that the rest of it won’t matter.
I don’t wish that stuff on anyone. Hope her kids get through all the crap her husband put them through.
Let’s pray for her and wish for the best. We all make blunders in this life. May she trust the Lord and He guide her to her home beyond.
“A loving spouse would be by her side to love and assist through this transition but in this case, I guess not...”
According to Andrew Young, they are both extremely malevolent people.
Are you sure the NE has ever given Liz their “Sad Last Days” treatment? Those are usually the key words. I first realized how prescient they were when they gave The Duke the “Sad Last Days” treatment about 30 years ago. Now, whenever I see those words on the cover of NE, smell the embalming fluid.
It puts a face on a problem many privately deal with everyday. When very public figures reveal they have a serious medical challenge, it often leads to a foundation to fund research. That's my answer to your question.
A very nasty lady:
I’ve said some harsh things about Elizabeth and her complicity in her husbands ascendance in politics, but I never wanted this.
Prayers for Elizabeth and her family.
Tough for children to lose their mother.
That’s too bad.
Oh well, back to football.
How many women is this woman?
That is interesting. Is it available in Canada?
“How many women is this woman? “
Hmmm. I thought the Spelling Nazi would at least take Sunday off....Oh well, back to football.
I thought folks who don't know the difference between "women" and "woman" would take Sunday off.
Rough old world for everyone.
..if it's not available, it should be!
It's time evil corpo types had to play on a level playing field like the rest of us.
We used to tar & feather people like that and run them out of town on a rail,
many old fashioned remedies need to be brought back,
I actually haven't finished watching the youtube video about it so I'm going back now.
I'm just at the point where the guys dad was sent home to die and now he's fine because of the hemp oil.
I’m pretty sure it’s been done a couple of times. I’m 47, and I can’t remember one time in the past 35 years that I heard about Liz’s health in anything other than negative terms.
Even Elizabeth Edwards does not deserve what she’s had to endure in her last days.
The outing of the sorry piece of trash husband, even tho she probably knew what he was and then the cancer.
I pity those children too. With all she went through to get them and now this. Also the loss of the other child.
If she’s sinned, she’s certainly paid for it, and so many others haven’t.
I hope this woman knows God. And I pray for a miracle. If there is none, I pray that she rest in peace.
So will John, Rielle, and little Francis will be attending the funeral?
She has broken her back five times, had both her hips replaced, has survived a benign brain tumor operation, has survived skin cancer, and has faced life-threatening bouts with pneumonia twice. She is reclusive and sometimes fails to make scheduled appearances due to illness or other personal reasons. She now uses a wheelchair and when asked about it she said that she has osteoporosis and was born with scoliosis.
I am sorry. Her poor children. They will be left with their disgusting liar father and his floozy.
you ask “available?”
Guess I’ll watch the full length video. But, people in the short video are saying that they use/used it. They had to get it from somewhere. Seems it is our law making body in congress who denies production and access not the “evil” corporations.
I read somewhere that she took hormone treatments to be able to give her husband that last child, and some theorized those hormone treatments may have brought on the cancer...what a double edged sword if so. The joy of the new child, the sadness of this awful disease. From what I’ve been reading in this blog, this one woman has had enough pain and suffering in her life. I wish her hope that a new treatment will show up before it’s too late.
I’m so very sorry for her children, and for her knowing that she has to leave them. May God bless them and give them comfort!
May she find peace and comfort in her last days.
But you are also right, it can be had, you just have to ignore/avoid the normal process.
And that , in itself, is the answer, we're never going to change "them", however we can ignore & avoid same (if enough do this "they" will wither & die on there own vile vine).
no matter one’s politics. No matter their lives. This is a very terrible and sad ending for anyone. I am pained however that she stood by that lying piece of you know what when he did NOTHING for her or her children.
I am sad for her daughter and two young children. To lose their mother will be devastating and I hope they are preparing themselves and spending every waking hour with her. When she IS called home...she will be with the son they lost and they will be together for all eternity.
Shame on John Edwards. What a poor excuse for a human being he is. Betrays his wife and his children as he did. Lost a son in the process and still didn’t realize the greatest joy in life is family. He’s a person I would not ever want to know.
Stay strong Elizabeth and know it is about time you stood for yourself. We will be praying for you though. May God be with you in these next days, weeks, months ahead. Not only the disease she has to deal with but...knowing she won’t be with her children either. My heart is sad for her.
I hear feminist have a cure...but that is their cure for all men no matter the man's condition.
