  1. Pretty sad story.

    Brittany Maynard was diagnosed with Stage 4 glioblastoma earlier this year and given six months to live
    Maynard and husband Dan Diaz moved from San Francisco to Oregon - one of only five states that have death-with-dignity laws
    The cancer patient has been lobbying lawmakers in other states to pass legislation that would allow people to choose how they want to die
    Maynard plans to end her life in her own bed on November 1 - a day after her husband's birthday.

    Make sure watch the video, It explain everything.

  2. This is what my step-mother died of... she was given 3-6 months to live and died 1 1/2 weeks after diagnosis.. there is, literally, nothing that can be done except to make peace with the fact that you are going to die.. I respect her decision.

  5. Personally i'm all for physician assisted suicide, that way you get a psych evaluation and all the steps taken to make sense out of your decision. Bible Thumpers might disagree, but that whole claim is so two faced it's ridiculous.
     
  6. there's no chance she could've lived or been cured?
     
  7. There is no cure for Stage 4 glioblastoma and any treatment would have the chance to prolong her life by a week or two at most.. and with that it's only prolonging her suffering.
