(VIDEO) 9/17/11: FORMER VP WALTER MONDALE DAUGHTER ELEANOR DIES TODAY; BRAIN CANCER

17 Sep

It was just reported that Eleanor Mondale, daughter of former Vice President Walter Mondale, died today at the age of 51. She lost her long battle with brain cancer and passed away peacefully in her Minnesota home.

Back in 2005, Mondale suffered two seizures during a camping trip and was later diagnosed with brain cancer. She was on the path to recovery when her tumor nearly vanished after chemotherapy and radiation treatment.  Unfortunately, her cancer returned in 2008 so she underwent surgery and was able to return to work. Eventually she had to take disability leave to treat the return of her brain cancer.  Mondale is survived by her parents, husband and two brothers. It is always painful to bury a child. 

It was also announced that hours after her death, Ted Kennedy’s daughter Kara, also died of cancer at the age of 51.  Two icons daughter’s dying on the same day, at the same age, of the same disease (cancer) is chilling.

It is always painful to bury a child.
