Brittany Maynard: Death by Dignity

The terminally ill Oregon patient, Brittany Maynard, took her life on Saturday, Nov. 1, in the way “she intended– peacefully in her bedroom, in the arms of her loved ones.” In her epitaph, there was a message directly from her, which stated “Love and peace to you all.”

She was diagnosed with stage IV glioblastoma multiforme, an aggressive form of terminal brain cancer. According to a report from BBC, Maynard “was suffering from increasingly severe seizures and head and neck pains which had at times limited her ability to speak.”
