Terminally ill 29-year-old woman speaks out on her choice to die

A 29-year-old woman with terminal cancer has moved to Oregon from California where she will have the right to die peacefully surrounded by her closest family and friends.

Brittany Maynard has chosen to take a doctor-prescribed medication that will end her life on November 1, the day after her husband’s birthday so she can celebrate with him one last time.

Maynard has shared her story in a powerful and emotional video for Compassion & Choices, a nonprofit end-of-life choice advocacy organization dedicated to expanding death-with-dignity laws nationwide.
