Elizabeth Edwards stops cancer treatment

Elizabeth Edwards is surrounded by family and friends in her North Carolina home after being informed by her doctors that further cancer treatment would be unproductive.

"Elizabeth has been advised by her doctors that further treatment of her cancer would be unproductive," the Edwards family said Monday in a statement. "She is resting at home with family and friends and has posted this message to friends on her Facebook page."

    Independetly of my own loss and experience in our battle, I was very impressed how many Americans responded to support Elizabeth. This is exactly what she needs now – power to believe in the best future. It is really all-American pain and suffering that we still lose people because of failed medical science.

    By the way. Generally, I still cannot believe: is it here CNN clone website, or something worse where I am now. Does somebody manages these postings?
