Elizabeth Edwards says her health is "no worse" than it was 18 months ago, when she announced her cancer had returned in an incurable form.
Edwards said Wednesday those were the findings of medical scans taken this week. The wife of two-time Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004, but was declared cancer-free after treatment.
She said in March of last year that the cancer had returned and spread to her bone. Edwards spoke Wednesday at a health care roundtable in Carrboro, part of her campaign against the policies of Republican presidential nominee John McCain.
Edwards supports mandatory universal health coverage. McCain supports free-market policies and a tax break to help drive down the cost of care.
