Elizabeth Edwards has passed away in her home this afternoon, losing her battle with cancer.
This news comes just one day after doctors advised her to stop her cancer treatment, because there is nothing more they could do.
Just yesterday she posted the following to her facebook:
“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.”
Elizabeth was said to be around family and friends, including John Edwards when she passed.
Elizabeth was 61 years old.
