One of Edge's children unwell?

Hi,

I just heard something on Irish tv about The Edge's children being unwell, they did not say which child but did mention Morleigh. I assume it is one of his youngest.

Aparently it was confirmed over the weekend the child has leukemia, has anyone heard this.

There is talk of the tour being delayed.

I do hope this is not true but if it is the whole family have my best wishes!

yeah I just read the u2 news and it has the same details, it is important for the family to be together.

On a good note one of our family friends baby had leukemia and only a month ago she was very unwell, the dr's took her off certain medication and she is now in remission. She was not meant to leave hospital until April but got out just before Christmas.

It is a very treatable illness, and I am sure everything will work out fine. They seem a very close family, and will get through all this together.

I heard it was a family member, it didn't specifically say a child. It could be one of his parents. How official was this report? It sounds so sad I have thought about other rock stars who have lost kids, Robert Plant, Eric Clapton, Vince Neil, and I was thinking how lucky U2 were that all their kids were healthy. I hope this isn't true

*Hugs Edge* I really hope his child or parents r really ok. My brother has lukemia but now he's also in remission, and he is doing well , once he doesnt over work himself or stresses himself out.

I know everyone here is sincerely concerned, but I think it's irresponsible to speculate on this kind of thing until we know for sure what's going on. It just seems a bit crass, given that Edge has seemingly tried hard to shield his kids from the public eye, and the only reason it's even come up is because of the tour postponement.

Nothing is confirmed, again let's not speculate!

Is there a link to a report you guys are reading, I don't see one. I sure hope it's not true. If it is I hope he knows he has the prayers of millions of U2 fans behind him.

Don't despair. Childhood leukemia responds well to treatment. (I work in a doctors' surgery). For now, all we can do is keep Edge and his family in our thoughts and wish for a full recovery.

This is all rumor! We don't know who is sick and what they have. How does anyone know it's not one of his parents or a sibling?

On Saturday it had to be his oldest daughter and now because his wife is mentioned it's his youngest daughter?

This is all coming from tabloid magazines!!!!

My prayers go out to his family. I've been through Cancer and I really sympathize

That still doesn't look very official, it's just a message board like this one. But if it is true, poor little thing

It's not an official statement, it's a message board. I hope it's not true. If it is, some kinds of leukemia are very treatable and there's hope. Still, it's horrible for anyone to have to go through.

Sorry, I never meant to imply that it was an official statement from U2, only that I had seen that info on different sites. Anyway, my prayers are with them.
