It's so comforting to know that Brittany Maynard's legacy lives on despite her untimely death.
Today, on what would have been Maynard's 30th birthday, her supporters have released a posthumous video in support of the Death with Dignity Act, a cause near and dear to her heart.
During Brittany's final months living with terminal brain cancer, she was a champion for the controversial measure which allows terminally ill patients to end their own lives.

Though many have publicly criticized the act, a group of Maynard supporters put together a touching tribute and PSA to educate the public on why the Death with Dignity Act should be passed across America.

This past weekend, Chris held a memorial service at Loma Linda University Church where family, friends, and strangers got a chance to say their goodbyes. Chris also got a chance to thank some of his supporters face-to-face, saying:

Well this is not what we wanted to hear at all.
Former South African president Nelson Mandela has been hospitalized for the past few weeks with a recurring lung infection and last we heard he was in critical condition.
Things apparently haven't gotten any better as officials are now reporting that the 94-year-old has been put on

Ever since Robin Roberts left GMA to go get her bone marrow transplant, she's been pretty radio silent.
She finally broke that silence with a new tweet:
She tweeted a pic (above) of a group of guys holding a sign that said:
"Came from Boston to wish Robin luck!! #GMA"
That's so sweet!
It must really be nice for Robin to know that she has so many supporters and well wishers rooting for her.
Including us! We wish her nothing but a successful procedure and a speedy recovery.

We understand how hot this debate has become, but breaking the law to get your message across is NOT the answer!
A Chick-fil-A in Torrance, California was vandalized overnight with graffiti that reads, "Tastes Like Hate."
That definitely will not help the cause of gay-rights activists planning "National Same-Sex Kiss Day," which asks same-sex couples to take a photo or video of themselves kissing in the fast food joint.
You can't fight fire with fire, so don't try fighting hate with more hate! While we
