Elizabeth Edwards, the estranged wife of former senator, vice-presidential and presidential candidate, John Edwards has succumbed to her long time battle with cancer. Only days after having stopped cancer treatment, at the advise of her physicians, Mrs. Edwards lost her battle with the deadly disease on Tuesday, December 7, 2010. Just prior to her passing she had posted the following message on her Facebook page: "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."
