PLEASE PRAY for Brittany Maynard—at 29 years old, she has been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor. She and her family have moved to Portland from California to access Oregon’s “Death with Dignity” assisted suicide program. She intends to end her life on November 1st, 2014.
Claiming she is not suicidal, she explained that she is afraid to die in the way that her doctors described to her when giving her diagnosis. She was told that she would die painfully and slowly—experiencing headaches, seizures, and vomiting.
“Being able to choose to go with dignity is less terrifying,” she noted.
Please pray for Brittany’s tragic situation and for her family—though we can never imagine the terror she must be going through with the horror stories her doctors have given her, choosing to end her own life out of fear for the future is no solution. She should have the best cancer professionals in the region comforting her and helping her manage pain to live as long and meaningful a life as possible! There is absolutely nothing dignified about being told you’re not worth keeping around and being properly taken care of.
