PORTLAND, Ore. — A terminally ill 29-year-old woman has chosen November 1 as the day she will die.

Shortly after her wedding in 2013, Brittany Maynard began experiencing debilitating headaches.

While on vacation with her husband in January, Brittany was diagnosed with grade II Astrocytoma, a severe brain tumor. Doctors told her she had 10 years left to live.

“I have to tell you,” she says in the video, “when you’re 29 years old, being told you have that kind of timeline still feels like being told you’re going to die tomorrow.”

Following the original diagnosis, doctors said her cancer had progressed to Glioblastoma multiforme, the deadliest form of brain cancer. After treatment, the average life expectancy is only 14 months.

When doctors told Brittany her death would likely be slow and painful as the tumor continued to grow, she opted to choose her own ending.

  1. How heartbreaking! But I love that Brittany is taking control of this out of control situation. I love that she is seizing the day and living life to the utmost. I think every state should allow people to choose how and when they want to end their life. I think this is what I would choose to do.

    Hey, it is weird because I have never really received email notices about this blog. Or at least not lately. I hope it was okay that I was here and commented. mb

  2. Of course! I don’t normally use this one anymore except as a reader for other peoples blogs. When I click “reblog” though, this is where it goes.
    I hope I would be strong enough to make the decision she made.

    So very sad. Sometimes life is just not fair.
