Elizabeth Edwards Reschedules Metro Detroit Appearance

Wife of former presidential candidate John Edwards and breast cancer

survivor to share story of preserving in tough times

FERNDALE, Mich., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- On Wednesday, Dec. 3, Elizabeth Edwards brings her message of finding hope and inspiration in life's challenges to the Troy Hilton, at 5500 Crooks Road. The Henry Ford Health System, Ford Motor Company and Metro Parent Magazine are proud to present this unique opportunity, entitled "An Evening with Elizabeth Edwards."

The event is rescheduled from its original Wednesday, Oct. 15 date, which was cancelled due to Mrs. Edwards mother's illness.

The country has gotten to know Elizabeth Edwards as she campaigned across the country during her husband's political campaigns. The day after the general election in 2004, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Mrs. Edwards was in remission until March 2007 when she discovered her cancer had returned. Her courageous battle with breast cancer has served as an inspiration to women across the country, which she shares in her memoir "Saving Graces: Finding Solace and Strength from Friends and Strangers." A passionate supporter of children and families, as well as an accomplished attorney, she has been an advocate for many important causes.

One that is dearest to her heart is the Wade Edwards Foundation. The foundation, which helps finance educational and enrichment programs for young people, is named after Mrs. Edwards' eldest child, Wade, who tragically died in a car accident in 1996 at the age of 16. Mrs. Edwards is the proud mother of three other children: Catharine, Emma Claire and Jack.

Despite a battle with breast cancer, the loss of a son and the pressures of living a life in the public eye, Mrs. Edwards has remained determined to live what she calls "an inspired life." Mrs. Edwards will share her story of how she's persevered through tough times. "An Evening with Elizabeth Edwards" is sure to be an uplifting and inspiring event for anyone who is or has experienced difficulty in their lives, especially those affected by breast cancer.

"An Evening with Elizabeth Edwards," will be held at the Troy Hilton in Troy, Mich. General admission tickets cost $25.

The event is presented by Henry Ford Health System, Ford Motor Company and Metro Parent Magazine. It is sponsored by the Michigan Education Savings Plan (MESP), Magic 105.1 and Inforum.

To purchase tickets or for additional information, visit or call 248-398-3400, ext. 128.
