This is indeed very sad news .

My heart goes out to her and her children and will keep them in my thoughts and Prayers .

S.N.O.T.S. Snotsworth's fair lady snots'quus .... Wild & free protect the mustang !........ Bear down chicago bears!!......Hail purdue go boilers !..... Want a sure thing for your money . Lay it down to a thoroughbred rescue . Bet on life after racing !

Of course she had the right to stop the treatment, that is very rough on ones body, and we really did not see her at the last. We had only been told of her words, that meant she knew it was eminent, to soon.


She was a Brave, Strong, Beautiful Lady, Now she rests with her Son, and Her G-d, at Peace..


Sweet G


Delilah cut Sampson's hair and forced him into servitude and demise, powerful is woman, strong and vigilant, she brought her men off battlefields to carry them on her back to safety or to burial

Her life, her choice how to lead it.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.

I agree with her decision.Why continue something if it's not going to help your diagnosis.I feel she had done enough suffering in her life marriage,death of a son,and cancer.Now her pain is gone.May GoD bless her family.

God Bless  Elizabeth Edwards and dam the liberal loon John Edwards.

News Flash: John Edwards is Still a Slimeball

Remember John Edwards? That whole “Two Americas” riff from way back in December 2007? (One you marry, the other you knock up…) The $400 haircuts? The mistress? The cancer-stricken wife? The love child? The smarmy excuses?

Me neither.

But apparently the National Enquirer isn’t letting pretty-boy Breck Girl go. Because–well, he’s still trying to bang anything with a pulse and no Y chromosomes:

[T]he philandering ex-senator embarked on a “sex-and-booze bender” after what appeared to be a marriage-ending blowout fight with his cancer-stricken wife Elizabeth.

While still publicly not admitting paternity of his love child – who turns 2 in February – the disgraced former presidential candidate shocked eyewitnesses by recently spending several consecutive nights trawling bars in search of women.

Before booting her shameless husband from their home after Christmas, Elizabeth screamed at John that she was “finally signing” the divorce papers she had her lawyers draw up last year during a previous battle over his relationship with Rielle Hunter, the mother of his baby.

Edwards fled to the couple’s vacation home on Figure Eight Island near Wilmington, N.C. – and attempted to bed a female bartender as well as bar patrons young enough to be his daughter, say shocked witnesses.

In a bombshell exclusive interview with The ENQUIRER, bartender Stephanie Breshears revealed that Edwards repeatedly tried to get her to go back to his house for sex.  The 34-year-old divorced mother-of-two said Edwards hit on  her “for four consecutive nights” at the local Kornerstone Bistro, where she works.

"I think he’s scum" Stephanie told The ENQUIRER. "He was definitely looking to pick up women when he came in here – and he wanted me to go back to his house."


I don't wish to be argumentative ,but I disagree with the Islamic belief that I should be killed! " If radical atheists decided they needed to kill believers to ensure their place in nothingness, I'd be criticizing that too."

This is another tragedy. This only means that cancer is really deadly and no cure is still available.

This is a very hard thing to do both for the person and the family, pain medication can only do to a point..I have seen ones at the end stage, all the money was not able to help..

Cancer is incurable but if you have the money there's nothing wrong to continue medication but if there is financial constraints better to stop treatment and be ready to accept what happen next.
