This past year, I was diagnosed with and treated for cancer and before/during my treatment, I went through a lot of things where "dignity" was not only absent, but also completely unimportant. I suspect Brittany Maynard did not want to experience her last days going through those sorts of things. I went through them because my prognosis was good; Maynard's was not. I COMPLETELY understand why she wanted to end her life before it too bad. I hope, at some point, you do too.
