The Edge's Daughter Beats Leukemia

Great news has emerged from the U2 camp. The Edge's 13-year-old daughter, Sian, is now cancer-free.

"You're in shock then you just go into survival mode," Edge's wife Morleigh Steinberg told WENN. "The whole thing is hell but at the same time you stay positive and you really live."

Sian was only 8 when she was first diagnosed with leukemia in early 2006. But after four-plus years of treatment in Los Angeles and Dublin, where the guitarist has area homes, she has apparently made a full recovery. That year, the illness prompted the Irish rock giants to bump the final leg of its Vertigo Tour, which included dates in New Zealand, Australia, Japan and Hawaii, back by several months.

"You live more because you don't want to take anything for granted," Steinberg continued. "She's through it and she's fine."
