Brittany Maynard, 29, was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor earlier this year. She was told she’d have six months to live. This coming Nov. 1, Maynard will end her life through assisted suicide, according to Deseret News National.
Maynard moved to Oregon to die “with dignity,” since much of the medication that would prolong her life “would have destroyed the time I had left,” she wrote in a blog post for CNN.
