Some Good News For Elizabeth Edwards

From the AP:

[Elizabeth Edwards] said her doctor expected she had the most aggressive “triple-negative” cancer, but testing found that she had two of the three key hormonal receptors — estrogen and progesterone. She said the original diagnosis was “slightly estrogen heavy,” but this time it’s a strong marker and she also has the second marker.

“I consider that a good sign,” Mrs. Edwards said in an interview in an art classroom before appearing with her husband at the Prairie High School gymnasium. “It means there are more medications which I can expect to be responsive.”

Obviously, cancer is cancer, and it’s still a long tough road ahead of her, but at this point, the Edwardses – and all of us – will take any good news we can get.
