Elizabeth Edwards Tends to 'Gravely Ill' Mother

Elizabeth Edwards has canceled all of her October speaking engagements so she can care for her "gravely ill" mother, it was announced Friday.

Detroit's Metro Parent Magazine said in a press release that among the speeches Edwards will miss is a magazine-sponsored address next week.

Her mother, Elizabeth Thweatt Anania, 85, lives in a nursing facility near Edwards's Chapel Hill, N.C., home and has been in declining health since losing her husband in March, Edwards' brother, Jay Anania, told PEOPLE in August.
