WASHINGTON (AP) Elizabeth Edwards is gravely ill and doctors have told her she only has weeks to live, according to a family friend who is among those who have gathered with Edwards at her North Carolina home.
The family issued a statement Monday that said doctors have told her that further treatment for her cancer would be unproductive, and the family friend further described Edwards' condition to The Associated Press.

Remember, folks, unfriendly eyes are watching.
God bless her.
Prayers for her children.
A very sad time for her family, her children. My prayers for her and her family.
When I read this, I felt terrible. It is really a shame and I wish her peace at last.
The second thought was john edwards should burn in hell for eternity.
I’m a cancer survivor, at least for today. I wish her the very best. If this is the end, I hope that she goes with dignity.
She will be remembered in my prayers.
Prayers for Elizabeth and those who love her. If a miracle is not to be had, may she have a comfortable and easy passing, and may her family and friends find the strength they need to make it through this very difficult time.
prayers for her and the children
Really sorry to hear it.
“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,” Edwards wrote in a message posted Monday on her Facebook page. “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. We know that.”
Sad...after all she’s been through.
you know who will get whats coming to him you know when. the book says so.
Prayers for the family..
Elizabeth, may God Almighty, the giver of all good gifts and graces, hold you in the hollow of His hand.
Prayers up for this mother and her children. Cancer is still yet to be tamed in our time. Prayers that our medical system survives long enough to find a cure and a way to extend lives.
Cancer is a terrible disease. Prayers going up for her and the family. My husband died of liver cancer, and 3 close cousins died from it in a 10 months period of time and 2 more have it.
No person, no matter the political persuasion, should have such an illness wished upon them. I pray that the Lord would make Himself known to her and provide either a miracle of healing or a peaceful passing...not to mention her salvation.
The children could be orphans soon ...
RALEIGH, N.C. Four relatives of a wealthy donor to John Edwards were at the federal courthouse in Raleigh on Friday, where a grand jury has been investigating the two-time Democratic presidential candidate.
Sources told WRAL News that Stacy Lloyd III, the son of heiress Rachel “Bunny” Mellon; his two sons, Stacy Lloyd IV and Thomas Lloyd; and Thomas Lloyd’s wife, Ricki Lloyd, were called to testify before the grand jury.
Grand jury proceedings are secret, but the panel is believed to be looking into Edwards’ campaign finances to determine whether any funds were used improperly, including whether money was used to hide an affair Edwards had with staffer Rielle Hunter.
I wonder if John will try to sell tickets?
May she live long enough to see the scum bag indicted.

Meanwhile, her former husband is out impregnating another bimbo.
It can't come soon enough for him.
I strongly disagree with her extreme left wing politics but I wish her well. She has been through a lot.
I'll second that.
She knew John was a slimeball when she married him.
Ole Johnny Boy will contribute his haircut expenses for the next 3 months to the NCS
You know what? These kids got kicked in the teeth huge. john edwards is so scum. They would probably be better off.
And if he goes to prison...and I hope he does...he is just sooo pretty////
Praying for the kids and I am truly sorry for Elizabeth. Whatever she did, it is between her and G-d now.
I am sure John can scrape together a negligence lawsuit with one of the Doctors involved. He is out of work and has a lot of time on his hands.
Along with cancer, many suffer with extreme stress and agony over how to pay for treatment, who will watch the kids, how to keep up with the mortgage, etc. She’s had it rough, no doubt, but probably much easier than the average person. Still, God bless her and the family.
the breck girl didnt deserve her.

I was with my grandmother when she died from cancer. It is a horrible death. My cousin died when he was 29 of a brain aneurysm and my grandmother was with him when they turned off life support. She said time and time again that the heartbreak, agony and anguish she suffered from that time was an open door to her cancer as her entire body was broken and unable to fight off anything.
That being said, go to hell John Edwards. Regardless of what I think of Elizabeth, she put herself at risk having more children and taking the hormones to get pregnant at her age. You are a monster. I hope your oldest daughter gets custody of those kids as you are no role model for any living being. No one deserves to be treated the way you did and the stress you put YOUR WIFE, THE MOTHER OF YOUR FOUR KIDS through could have contributed to the acceleration of her disease.
If my husband behaved the way you have, his balls would be in a baby food jar on my mantle.
And I hardly believe that where you will be going, you will reunite with your son. No worries, his mother will be there to comfort him.
I found last night a friend of mine has stage 4 rectal cancer. She is at peace knowing she will spend eternity in the comfort of God’s arms.
I pray that Elizabeth and those who love her can find this same peace.....prayers for all....
Is for her POS husband.........
Actually, his balls would be in a mason jar, YOURS would be in a baby food jar.
I think she is a tough lady in a good way her politics aside.
God Bless her.
I read her book and it was frankly great (minus the liberal stuff—but there wasn’t much politics in the book).
Prayers for her.
Prayers for Mrs. Edwards and her children.
And what does anyone want to bet that he will show up as the grieving husband at her funeral.
May this brave woman rest in the arms of Jesus. From all I’ve heard and read about her, it seems that she experienced more than her share of hell on earth.
The Lord Is My Shepherd A Psalm of David. 23:1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his names sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
That's certainly a relief.
I'm not sure that reminding people that we're being watched by people who wish harm to this website is an admonition, but you have as much right to your opinion as anyone.
