How is Elizabeth Edwards' fight against breast cancer? It was so sad when it happened, and we never hear anything about her now.
—Martin R., Franklin, Pa.
On Nov. 3, 2004, the day U.S. Sen. John Kerry conceded defeat in the presidential race, Elizabeth Edwards, wife of Kerry's vice-presidential running mate, John Edwards, announced that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent a 16-week period of chemotherapy and in March 2005, had a lump removed from her breast, and then received radiation treatment followed by more chemotherapy. Last June, Edwards completed her chemotherapy and reportedly was doing very well.
