EXCERPT

DEATH WITH DIGNITY

MONTH TWO

DAY FOUR

On November 2nd, 2014, Brittany Maynard, age 29, made history by choosing to end her own life after a diagnosis of late stage brain cancer that would claim her life within the six months. Her decision was made with the blessing of her family who relocated to Oregon to take advantage of the Death With Dignity legislation that enabled her to choose when and how to spend her final days, on her terms, while she still had the mental capacity to make an informed decision.

It was a historic decision, one that made media headlines, and, more importantly, opened the much-needed debate on the right to die. Which made it no less heartbreaking for her husband, Dan Diaz, who has made it his mission to continue her advocacy. In his bittersweet words: “It truly was the most peaceful experience you could ever hope for when you talk about a person’s passing,” Diaz said. “The suffering and the torment and everything she had gone through — that was finally lifted.”

Her legacy will grace the lives and ease the suffering of others to come.

AFFIRMATION: IT IS MY LIFE. IT IS MY CHOICE.
