Terminally ill cancer patient — Brittany Maynard – ended her own life on Saturday, Nov. 1, at her home in Portland, Oregon. Maynard was 29 at the time of her death.
“It’s not suicide,” she said at the time. “It’s meant to relieve the suffering.”
Maynard wrote on Facebook…
“Goodbye to all my dear friends and family that I love. Today is the day I have chosen to pass away with dignity in the face of my terminal illness, this terrible brain cancer that has taken so much from me … but would have taken so much more. The world is a beautiful place, travel has been my greatest teacher, my close friends and folks are the greatest givers. I even have a ring of support around my bed as I type … Goodbye world. Spread good energy. Pay it forward!”
May she now rest in peace.
