2008 Democrat Presidential Hopeful (Democratic nominee for Vice President in 2004) John Edwards announced today that his wife’s cancer had returned and because it’s now located within her bone it is now incurable.
The good news, bone cancer, though not curable, is treatable.
“A bone study that was done actually made the suspicion about the rib on the right side more intense. As a result there was a biopsy done on the rib on the right side… The cancer has returned, it is malignant… The end result of all the tests is her cancer is back. It is largely contained within bone, which is a good thing… The cancer is no longer curable, but it is completely treatable… We will be in this every step of the way together.”1
Mrs. Edwards also made the comment “I don’t expect my life to be significantly different.” When asked about her husband’s presidential campaign, she noted “…I am absolutely ready for that… I’m immensely proud of his campaign…”
Although I’m not a supporter of John Edward’s politics, I can’t deny that both he and his wife are extremely strong-willed and optimistic individuals.
