U2's The Edge And His Wife Endured 'Hell' After Their Daughter Was Diagnosed With Leukemia

The Edge’s daughter, Sian, has beaten cancer, but her mom, Morleigh Steinberg, says that the family struggled to stay positive as she fought for her life.

Morleigh Steinberg, the wife of U2 rocker The Edge — real name David Evans – has described for the first time the “hell” the couple went through as their now 13-year-old daughter, Sian, battled cancer. As any mother would be, Morleigh was devastated in 2006 when she discovered that her daughter had leukemia. “You’re in shock then you just go into survival mode,” she tells WENN. “The whole thing is hell but at the same time you stay positive and you really live. You live more because you don’t want to take anything for granted.”

After The Edge, 49, received the news, U2 postponed some of the dates on their Vertigo tour so that the guitarist could be home with his family — Morleigh and The Edge also have a son, Levi, 11. The supportive dad took his daughter to receive treatment in both Los Angeles and his hometown of Dublin, Ireland, and she has now made a solid recovery.  “She’s through it and she’s fine,” Morleigh says.

In March 2009, The Edge made a comment that he had “a brush with cancer” in his own family — refusing to elaborate — that led him to join the fight against the disease. Now we know that it was Sian who was battling the deadly illness. The Edge is involved with the Angiogenesis Foundation, an organization using new scientific techniques to treat cancer, blinding diseases, wounds, and other serious conditions.

We are happy to hear that Sian has recovered and is doing well!

I have been surfing online greater than three hours as of late, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the web shall be much more useful than ever before.
