    I hope they caught it early, and that she has an uneventful recovery.

    I hope so too. They have a couple of really young kids.

    If she discovered it herself as opposed to through a mammogram, it may not be early-stage. Let's hope that everything goes well with treatment.

    Hey, how about some comments from FreeRepublic?

    Thanks to all the Freepers for their support.

    What horrible timing.

    Thoughts and prayers, hopefully from all sides.

    John Edwards is still in the Senate for another couple months, so I would say so.

    But yeah, I'd say that the Edwards family has had a rough week.

    All those people, either in this life or the next, will pay.

    Re: Elizabeth Edwards Diagnosed with Breast Cancer

    Both my grandmothers died of breast cancer. My wife's mother was diagnosed a few years ago, and gave us quite a scare, but she had a "lumpectomy" and it's been in remission ever since.

    Here's to hoping that Mrs Edwards recovers quickly.

    We don't even have to go to Free Republic to find these people. We got one right here.
    Check this out.

    Any of the reasonable conservatives on this board care to counter balance the Freeper's lunacy? (besides dfb547490)

    I hope she has a speedy and healthy recovery.

    Once I spread enough rep around, I will indeed give you props for that.

    I don't know if this helps, but strength in numbers...

    I know I have made a couple of fat jokes in the past and know I feel bad. My grandma survived while her daughter (my aunt) died from this cancer. There may never be a good time or bad time for such things but why not get all this out of the way all at once. Next year this time, the Edwards family will have better things on the horizon.

    I guess one consolation for Kerry's loss is that John Edwards can concentrate on helping Elizabeth fight cancer without the distraction of preparing for the Vice Presidency.

    I'm not one of those people who believe things happen for a reason, but there are more important things than running a country.

    They just a piece on her on TV, she seems like a classy lady, surrounded by a good family.

    She knew days b/4 the campaign ended. but decided to hold off on a testing in order to focus on campaign issues.

    The best of luck to her..
