Good News for Liz Edwards

Elizabeth Edwards received some good news yesterday on her cancer, but made it clear she’s not happy with the way the AP has been covering the story:

ABC’s Jake Whitman Reports:  Elizabeth Edwards says she has received some good news:  She has a type of cancer that is more likely to be controlled by anti-estrogen drugs.
Mrs. Edwards spoke to the Associated Press last night in Cedar Rapids, Iowa while campaigning with her husband.
Mrs. Edwards also expressed frustration to the AP over reports that she’s likely to die within five years.
She said doctors can’t give her a reliable life expectancy and even if they could, the information would be of no comfort to her.
“I don’t care,” she told the AP, “I’m going to fight exactly as hard if they tell me that I’ve got 15 years or if I’ve got 30 years. I’m still going to fight to get rid of this – if they tell me I’ve got 15 minutes I’m still going to fight. It doesn’t matter what the prognosis is. So it’s not an important piece of information to me.”
