John And Elizabeth Edwards Announce Her Cancer Has Returned


Elizabeth Edwards' cancer has returned, but former North Carolina senator John Edwards says he will continue his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination.

John Edwards disclosed that his wife had breast cancer the day after he lost the vice presidency in 2004. Elizabeth Edwards, who's 57, underwent surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.

Her husband says the cancer discovered this week is largely confined to bones. He says the cancer is "no longer curable," but that it's
"treatable."
