Linda McCartney Loses Battle With Breast Cancer

Linda McCartney, wife of former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney, died Friday morning after a three year battle with breast cancer. McCartney, 56, worked as a photographer, a musician, started her own line of vegetarian foods, and was an ardent animal rights activist.

McCartney’s husband said people wanting to send condolences should consider adopting a vegetarian diet or giving donations to animal welfare or cancer research organizations in her name.
