Brittany Maynard Commits Suicide [VIDEO]

Brittany Maynard, the terminally ill woman who gained fame over the last few weeks with her public decision to end her life, died Saturday at home in Portland, Oregon. โ€œGoodbye to all my dear friends and family that I love,โ€ she wrote on Facebook. โ€œToday is the day I have chosen to pass away with dignity in the face of my terminal illness, this terrible brain cancer that has taken so much from meโ€ฆ but would have taken so much more.โ€ Diagnosed with a likely stage 4 glioblastoma, the 29-year-old Maynard was told last spring that she had six months to live and moved to Oregon to take her life with a fatal dose of barbiturates under the stateโ€™s Death with Dignity Act.
