In a White House statement, the president said that as first lady, Mrs. Ford was a powerful advocate for women's health and women's rights. In his words, she "distinguished herself through her courage and compassion."

He noted that after she left the White House, Mrs. Ford helped reduce the social stigma surrounding addiction and inspired thousands to seek much-needed treatment. Obama said organizations such as the Betty Ford Center will honor her legacy by giving countless Americans a new lease on life.

The president said he and the first lady send their thoughts and prayers to the Ford children.
