While this story is beyond tragic, we applaud Brittany Maynard for her courage and strength.

The terminally ill 29-year-old was diagnosed with brain cancer back in April and she has since decided, along with her husband, to end her own life under Oregon's Death With Dignity Act. It will happen on Nov. 1st.

This is an emotional choice the whole world has heard, and she's now speaking directly to everyone listening.

Ever since Brittany made her decision, media outlets and publications have been going out of their way to share her emotional story. And they should be!

In a recent interview, Maynard revealed:

"I don't want to die but I am dying. My cancer is going to kill me, and it's a terrible, terrible way to die. So to be able to die with my family with me, to have control over my own mind, which I would stand to lose – to go with dignity is less terrifying."

We understand why Brittany made her difficult choice and she has our support until the very end.

According to her mom, Brittany hopes to visit the Grand Canyon before she passes away and we would love for that dream to come true.

    New cancer research and experimental treatment comes out daily. You'd think for the sake of her family, she would try a little bit first.

    Kat………..follow the WHOLE case. She has been told by more than one doctor that she has less than six months to live and that there is nothing they can do.

    Please share . It would be good for her to know there are groundbreaking research articles about non harmful cancer eradication methods.
