Terminally Ill Woman Brittany Maynard Has Ended Her Own Life

Heart breaking story. Do you think it is more brave to choose to end one's own life, or to try to fight the illness to the end?

She had brain cancer : is very, very painful.

last time my cousin had colon cancer : stage 3 (terminal stage)
It came, without warning.
Even though she took morphine as pain killer and undergone chemotherapy, it is still very painful esp. when the attack come. Sometimes, she just screamed in pain, despite morphine jab.
She shaved her hair bald.

Although she did not take her own life, but seeing her suffering like that in great pain, despite morphine jab, one can't help but hope she can rest in peace soon.

My cousin's case was colon cancer.
Those of you who detect blood in your stool during bowel motion, be careful.
My friend, an Insurance agent, said many people past 40 years old & above, a lot are getting hit by different type of cancer, as they approach her for hospitalization insurance claim, etc.

What more if this pitiful young lady have brain cancer : attack the head some more, pain is so terrible

Any form of cancer -
for patients at terminal stage, the excruciating pain is killing, despite jab of pain killer given.

A terminal illness of any kind will cause the patient to suffer towards the end...for Brittany, it will be more painful as it is her brain. She is very brave to end her life.

if she had chosen to live on, she will suffer terribly towards the end of the illness...she had seizures and headaches before she ended her life.

Friend passed away in May this year of brain cancer. She was diagnosed end of last year and gone within 6 months. She did not go for any treatment. She felt giddy all the time. Died a few days before her wedding anniversary.

Looks like brain cancer is on the rise. I think brain cancer is the worst kind of all cancers.
