Elizabeth Edwards

Sorry for no earlier posts, major technical issues at the press center today.

Elizabeth Edwards, wife of Sen. John Edwards, made an appearance at the High Point Market today.

She wasn't here to talk politics, she spoke about cancer and her book "Saving Graces: Finding Solace and Strength from Friends and Strangers."

She made the appearance at the showroom of a friend of the family.

Before her comments she was presented a a pink ribbon bag from High Point Regional for her efforts in cancer awareness.

Edwards talked about how she receives strength from everyone around her.

She said her book is about getting support during bad times-- she noted that she has gone through some bad times before with her cancer and hinted that she was going through another rough time.

"Get to know the people around you," Edwards implored.

For Edwards, everyone around her weaves a tapestry of support.

Her talk went slightly political only once.

Edwards talked about a time where she went out on a furniture shopping trip with a bunch of strangers. They all met at her house and they carpooled together. When she got back from the trip her husband asked, "why was there a car with a Bush sticker in my driveway?"
