Today we lost an admirable woman who battled breast cancer since 2004. Elizabeth Edwards epitomized a woman who fought this horrible disease with true grace. She was dealt blow after blow, a child dying tragically at 16, a philandering husband that bore a child out of wedlock and then of course, her recurring breast cancer. Yet throughout it all, she held her head up high.
I will never forget during her recent interview with Larry King, she said to others suffering from terminal cancer: Simply live each day to the fullest. Like Elizabeth, I was diagnosed with stage 3, breast cancer. And the fact that it came back and ultimately killed her, scares the hell out me. Today I cried for Elizabeth's passing. But I suppose I am also crying for me. I am crying over the fear of the unknown.
A couple years ago, when Joe was living with me, I awoke in the middle of the night and said to Joe: Why did you tell me I would die at 56 years old? He replied, I said no such thing. Than I realized he told me that in a dream.
