I'm sorry to see that, even though I don't know the woman. Nobody should have to deal with cancer I hadn't watched any news today. Glad you posted it. (Oops - just as I was typing this a quick news thing came on about it.) There's not much anyone can say or do, though.
Fishskinfreak, as much as I would like to blame John Edwards, I don't think that is honest. Yes, he is a disgraceful man and his actions certainly had to contribute to her suffering. But to her cancer?
A good friend of mine died of cancer in her early 40s a couple of years ago. She got the very best treatments that were available. Her husband was an MD and absolutely devoted to her. Cancer is a terrible disease, and yes it does have many contributing factors; but I am not sure it is accurate to blame John Edwards. Even so, there are plenty of other reasons to dislike or even despise him.
