Former First Lady Barbara Bush, the wife and mother of two presidents, has made a decision to end medical treatment for a life-threatening illness.

Both Barbara Bush and George H.W. Bush have dealt with health problems in recent years.

It said that Mrs Bush, after consulting with relatives and doctors, had chose to "focus on comfort care" at the family home in Houston.

"It will not surprise those who know her that Barbara Bush has been a rock in the face off her failing health, worrying not for herself-thanks to her abiding faith-but for others", he wrote. She was also diagnosed with Graves' disease in the 1980s.

Bush, who served as president from 1989 to 1993, has a form of Parkinson's disease and uses a motorized scooter or a wheelchair for mobility.
