Although Betty Ford is 86, there does not seem to be any report of her having a health related problem that would lead to her early demise. The latest news on her is that she has stepped down from her position at the Betty Ford Clinic and handed over the leadership position to her daughter.

Betty Ford's Wikipedia entry indicates that she was born in 1918, making her 87 this year, not 89.

Mrs. Ford underwent a successful masectomy in September, 1974. More than 30 years later there has been no known recurrance of her breast cancer. According a book on first ladies by some guy named Anthony, she had open heart surgery in 1987 and has suffered for many years from arthritis (the book also says she attributed that to her alcohol and drug addiction for which she was successfully treated in 1978). But at the age of 87 there have been no recent reports on the health of Betty Ford.

Both Gerald and Betty Ford appeared quite well at the recent award ceremony. Betty Ford obviously has quite a bit of time left; in fact, I'd advise against placing her on for another 5 years, unless something unexpected (i.e. an Alzheimer's announcement, a stroke, etc.) happens. Despite her history of alcoholism and prescription drug abuse, I would not be surprised to see Betty Ford live well into her 90s, and possibly even make it to 100.

After Dutch poet Jan Boerstoel I'd say:

Drinking makes your head go sore
But sober living even more.

After American-Italian poet Dean Martin, I'd say...

Should Mrs. Ford die first however, the ex prez would not last very long w/out her.

Makes me wonder why she's receiving this award now and didn't get it earlier seeing as all the things she's being honoured for were a while ago. Maybe she has a illness we dont know about?

I swear that there's some "Awards Committee" out there who gives out awards to people whenever they feel like it. I see it happen all the time where someone who hasn't done anything in a decade gets some award that I've never heard of.
