Two Daughters Of Political Figures Die, Both 51

| Filed under: R.I.P.PolitikSad Sad

Yesterday, we informed you of the sad news that Kara Kennedy, the eldest daughter of former Senator Ted Kennedy had passed away.

On Saturday, another political figure's daughter died at the age of 51, as well. Eleanor Mondale, daughter of former Vice President Walter Mondale passed away after suffering from brain cancer on and off for six years.

Her father and former vice president said:

"Our wonderful daughter … after her long and gutsy battle against cancer, went up to heaven last night."

Losing both women has been a terrible tragedy. Their families are in our prayers.

    Kara Kennedy, who was found unresponsive in the steam room of the fitness clus has not looked well- by those pics, she looked 20 years older then she was. Maybe the cancer tx did play alot on her, her Cancer was supposed to be untreatable but her father found some tx for it. Also, she was a previous smoker, dk about drinking, but so many in family were, including her family, her brother Patrick who went for T nand her mother who has gone in and out of REHAB for DECADES for alcoholism. In the end, she died of a heart attack, but, yes, her brother was right, the cancer tx probably did weaken her, and yes, she did have lung cancer and was a smoker before the cancer. So, smoking, cancer, in the end, did her in.

    I hope the 'KENNEDY CURSE' doesn't get thrown around. Others in the family-her uncles,-ASSASINATED-they were Politicians 1Uncle-plane shot down during WWII, Aunt- her plane went down I believe over English Channel, WWII, HER COUSINS-1 OD'ed, 1 died after playing "Kennedy Football on a Ski Sloop (all told to stop, didn't) and Ski'd into a tree, head trauma, and John Jr. , flew into the sea on a night experienced pilots would not fly

    I don't get it. People who actually do good die from ONE heart attack. Meanwhile someone who spread evil all around the world and gets away with it aka Dick Cheney, has 100 of them and they just keep living….

    The main concern for the survivors, and I am sure they have thought of this before, While the news has mention that Patrick , her brother , had a benign tumor removed from is spine, EVERYONE ELSE IN THE FAMILY HAS HAD CANCER. She had Lung Cancer, Her father had brain cancer, her mother, still alive, has been tx for breast cancer, and her brother Ted, when he was around 11 had a LEG REMOVED for Cancer. This family is not curses, but was dealt the genetic hellhole for cancers. Do the brothers get tested for all sorts of cancer constantly, and she left behind a son and daughter, and Ted has a son and daughter. What fears do you have for your nieces and nephews-your kids, with that genetic make up????

    It sounds like Kara was actually quite lucky, she was diagnosed in 2002, and lived another 9 years.
