Elizabeth Edwards' Cancer Returned

It’s in a rib now. John Edwards said that the doctor said that once breast cancer goes somewhere else in the body it’s not curable anymore, but it is treatable. She’ll get treatment for the rest of her life. The doctor told them that the analogy is that of diabetes, you have the disease and you treat it. Lifelong.

Elizabeth had pain in her ribs and went to the doctor for x-rays. They found a cracked rib on the left, but something odd on the right. They did further testing and a biopsy and found cancer in the bone.

They are optimistic. The campaign goes on. Our prayers are with them.
