Things aren’t looking too good for Elizabeth Edwards.

Her cancer has taken a turn for the worse and is now metastasized to the liver.

“Elizabeth has been advised by her doctors that further treatment of her cancer would be unproductive. She is resting at home with family and friends,” the Edwards family says in a statement to People magazine.

Elizabeth posted a Facebook message to her friends. “I have been sustained throughout my life by three saving graces ­ my family, my friends, and a faith in the power of resilience and hope,” she wrote. “These graces have carried me through difficult times and they have brought more joy to the good times than I ever could have imagined. The days of our lives, for all of us, are numbered. We know that.”

Elizabeth, the estranged wife of presidential candidate John Edwards, who was first diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2004, was briefly hospitalized last week after not feeling well over Thanksgiving.

  2. that is sad

  3. I read this on the news this morning. Very sad. A sad ending to a couple really tough years, within several more tough years for her. I doubt she wants pity, and hopefully my comment doesn’t sound this way. Wishing her serenity and peace….and some of kind of healing.
