Her Darkest Hours

In November 1998, Romney was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord, and has said that acupuncture, reflexology and other holistic measures have improved her quality of life. In 2008, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a lumpectomy. She has been cancer-free since then. (Photo: Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)
