Goodbye World. Today Is The Day I've Chosen To Pass Away With Dignity...
Today is the day I've chosen to pass away with dignity in the face of my terminal illness... Goodbye world. Spread good energy.
Pay it forward.
In April of this year Brittany Maynard was given six months to live.
Mid year she made the decision to move with her family from California to Oregon to access that state's Death With Dignity Act.
Oregon's law gave her the option to take life ending medication if her dying process became unbearably painful and before the tumor took over her mind.
Yesterday, before it did, this very brave and beautiful twenty nine year old woman died gently and peacefully at home in the arms
of her loved ones.
There's more about Brittany as an advocate for the right of the individual to die with dignity here.
Goodbye brave Brittany and thankyou.
Rest in Peace...
