(The Blaze) Brittany Maynard — the terminally ill woman who vowed to take her own life Nov. 1, then said she decided to wait a bit longer earlier this week — has died, according to the Daily Mail and Time.
The report of Maynard’s death was confirmed by People on Sunday night, Time said.
“Goodbye to all my dear friends and family that I love,” the 29-year-old wrote on Facebook. “Today 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 me … but would have taken so much more. The world is a beautiful place, travel has been my greatest teacher, my close friends and folks are the greatest givers. I even have a ring of support around my bed as I type. … Goodbye world. Spread good energy. Pay it forward!”
When Maynard indicated she would wait longer to end her life, she made it clear that she still planned to do so before getting too sick. Maynard suffered from stage IV glioblastoma multiform.
“I still feel good enough and I still have enough joy and I still laugh and smile with my family and friends enough that it doesn’t seem like the right time right now,” she earlier this week. “But it will come, because I feel myself getting sicker. It’s happening each week.”\
