In the sad days before she died, Elizabeth Edwards received some joyous news: Her daughter Cate Edwards got engaged to longtime boyfriend Trevor Upham. Trevor popped the question over Thanksgiving weekend. Although this is obviously a tremendously painful time for the Edwards family (especially with the Elizabeth Edwards funeral protest), it’s wonderful that Elizabeth heard the news before she passed. Here are five things about Cate Edwards’ fiance, Trevor Upham:
1. He’s a doctor.
2. He attended medical school at Georgetown.
3. He and Cate, a lawyer, met as undergrads at Princeton University.
4. As a physician, he actually helped Elizabeth Edwards understand some of the technical terms and details of her cancer.
5. He was a mathlete in high school, and he once said he and Cate bonded over their shared love for math.
We wish the couple all the best.
