Terminally ill cancer patient, Brittany Maynard, dead at 29

Brittany Maynard Ends Her Life After Battle With Stage 4 Cancer

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.

#IAmUnbroken — The Story that will change your life

unbroken

Louis Zamperini is a survivor. He was bullied as a child, was stranded at sea for 47 days during his service in the Air Force, and was held against his will in a POW camp.

This trailer comes from the upcoming film Unbroken (which was adapted from the book of the same name). It’s an uplifting, fascinating story that must be seen to be believed. The producers of Unbroken want to include others that have overcome adversity, so they can share them with the world. If your story of strength is selected, you’ll not only be featured on The Today Show, but you could literally save a life.
