Geraldine Ferraro, who in 1984 became the first female vice presidential candidate on a major U.S. party ticket, died Saturday in Boston, a family spokeswoman said.
"Gerry actually waited for all of them to come, which I think was incredible," said Raje, director of the myeloma program at the hospital's cancer center. "They were all able to say their goodbyes to Mom."
Ferraro, however, developed pneumonia, which made it impossible to perform the procedure, and it soon became clear she didn't have long to live, Raje said.
