*UPDATED*Elizabeth Edwards In Last Stages of Cancer Says Doctors

Im deeply saddened to say that today Mrs. Edwards lost her battle with cancer at age 61. Though it is sad to think of her gone, it is great to know that her daily suffering is over. My prayers are with her family and friends.
Former Presidential candidate John Edwards' estranged wife Elizabeth Edwards came to the forefront during his campaign as a woman battling cancer. She quickly became a familiar face of the disease and has put forth many efforts in combatting it. In recent news her marriage and personal life have been put on blast due to Mr. Edwards' infidelity and love child. Even with all of this going on, Elizabeth has braved a smile and continued to live every day battling cancer.

As of this weekend, doctors have made it known that her cancer has spread and is untreatable. Elizabeth took to her facebook page to share with friends and fans and thank them for their support. She wrote:
"The days of our lives, for all of us, are numbered. We know that. And yes, there are certainly times when we aren't able to muster as much strength and patience as we would like. It's called being human. But I have found that in the simple act of living with hope, and in the daily effort to have a positive impact in the world, the days I do have are made all the more meaningful and precious. And for that I am grateful."
Wow.. the courage. It is said that Elizabeth is home surrounded by close friends and family. My prayers are with them and my heart goes out to everyone battling this disease. Let Elizabeth be proof that even when things dont look up you can find some reason to smile.
