Sad Elizabeth Edwards, 61, Dies After Six-Year Battle with Breast Cancer
Dec. 7, 2010

After a six-year battle with breast cancer, Elizabeth Edwards has died at age 61, ABC News has learned.

Earlier this week it was announced that Edwards, who had been admitted and then released from the hospital over Thanksgiving, had stopped all cancer treatment.

Edwards who is estranged from her husband and one-time presidential hopeful John Edwards, was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004.

"Elizabeth has been advised by her doctors that further treatment of her cancer would be unproductive," said a statement released by Edwards' family. "She is resting at home with family and friends."
