Cate Edwards, who lost her mother, Elizabeth, to breast cancer in 2010, admits not a day goes by when she doesn't think of her mom.

The oldest daughter of former senator John Edwards, Cate has followed in her late mother's footsteps as an advocate for women with cancer and recently joined the "Count Us, Know Us, Join Us" campaign, which recognizes those living with advanced breast cancer, their caregivers, supporters, friends and family members.

The 31-year-old, who wed longtime boyfriend Trevor Upham in 2011, says being by her mother's side during the six-year-long battle was "enlightening in a lot of ways, and being a part of that process with her was momentous for me."
