Cancer Survivors: Addressing ongoing needs Join this Group

Elizabeth Edwards Said Goodbye Today

By HERWriter Guide December 6, 2010 - 6:18pm

Elizabeth Edwards has been advised that nothing more can be done for her cancer. The wife of former presidential candidate John Edwards posted on her Facebook page today that she can't express the love and gratitude she feels to those who've supported and inspired her. She wrote "The days of our lives, for all of us, are numbered." National Public Radio covered the story here. http://www.npr.org/2010/12/06/131858961/elizabeth-edwards-seriously-ill-with-cancer?ft=1&f=1014&sc=tw

What are your thoughts on this? She has shown extraordinary grace under tremendous public pressure, and many healthy people admire her. How do the members of this group, fellow cancer survivors, cope with your own feelings when a very public figure dies or prepares for their final days?
