article imageElizabeth Edwards cuts John Edwards out of her will

By Michael Krebs     Jan 5, 2011 in Politics
Having lost her battle with breast cancer in early December, it was revealed that the will of Elizabeth Edwards did not mention her unfaithful husband - former Democratic vice presidential candidate John Edwards.
There was no mention of former Democratic vice presidential candidate John Edwards as a beneficiary in the will of Elizabeth Edwards, according to a Politico report published on Wednesday.
The North Carolina senator had been separated from Elizabeth Edwards after it was revealed in early 2010 that he was the father of a child conceived in an extramarital affair.
“All of my furniture, furnishings, household goods, jewelry, china, silverware and personal effects and any automobiles owned by me at the time of my death I give and bequeath to my children,” the will stated, Politico reported.
Elizabeth Edwards lost her battle with breast cancer on December 7, after the disease progressed rapidly from September.
"The decision when to stop chemotherapy and focus on symptom management is one of the most gut-wrenching we face, especially in breast cancer, because there are so many therapies with some chance of working, but that chance decreases with each successive regimen, while [treatment] toxicity remains the same or increases," Dr. Daniel Hayes, clinical director of the Breast Oncology Program at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center in Ann Arbor told ABC News in December.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday John Edwards faced a reconvened federal grand jury investigation on the former presidential candidate's campaign spending - and the Washington Post reported that the widow of a former high-powered Edwards fundraiser was in attendance as a witness.
