Elizabeth Edwards Dies of Cancer at 61
Elizabeth was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2004, shortly after her husband lost the bid for vice presidency.
She passed away in her home today (December 7) in Chapel Hill, North Carolina surrounded by her family.
In a statement, her family said “Today we have lost the comfort of Elizabeth‘s presence but she remains the heart of this family. We love her and will never know anyone more inspiring or full of life.”
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Edwards family.
