Elizabeth Edwards Makes First Solo Campaign Stop Since Cancer Recurrence

Cleveland (AP) -- Elizabeth Edwards has returned to the campaign trail for her husband, buoyed by a national outpouring of sympathy since announcing that her cancer had returned.

Drawing comparisons to seven-time Tour de France winner and cancer survivor Lance Armstrong, Edwards told a crowd in Ohio that she understands that "you can't stop when people are cheering for you all along the way."

Edwards entered the room to a standing ovation on her first solo trip since John Edwards announced last week he would stay in the Presidential race despite the return of his wife's now-incurable cancer.

Mrs. Edwards was first diagnosed with breast cancer in the final weeks of the 2004 campaign when her husband was the running mate of Presidential Candidate John Kerry.
