All the major news outlets are reporting that Elizabeth Edwards is gravely ill and doctors have told her she only has a few weeks to live. The family issued a statement today that said doctors have told her that further treatment for her cancer would be unproductive.

Edwards was first diagnosed with cancer in the final weeks of the 2004 presidential campaign. The cancer went into remission after months of treatment, but it resurfaced in early 2007. Because the cancer had moved into her bones in 2007, her doctors said at that time that it was no longer curable but could be treated. Doctors now have recommended she not receive further treatment, according to the statement from her family.
