Edmondson Struggled With Saunders' Cancer Battle

British funnyman ADE EDMONDSON felt useless as his wife JENNIFER SAUNDERS battled cancer - because there was nothing he could do to help the star.
The Absolutely Fabulous actress was diagnosed with breast cancer last October (09), but remained silent about her struggle until she was given the all-clear by doctors in June (10).
Now Edmondson has opened up about the "horrible" ordeal, revealing Saunders has to wait five years to see if she has fully beaten the "horrible" disease.
He says, "The chemotherapy knocks you out and that's just brutal. You're hooked up to drips and things for three or four hours once a week. It's just grinding. It's horrible. And, the hardest thing was, there's nothing I could do to take it away."
