OREGON - Brittany Maynard, 29, got national attention after she released a video explaining why she was going to take her own life. She's got terminal brain cancer and chose November 1 as the day to end her life so she could "die with dignity." Her story and video went viral, and with all the soft background music and inspirational life lessons and quotes from Brittany and her family, it tugged at everyone's heartstrings. But some of that emotion is turning to anger. People are lashing out on social media after Brittany released another video. Now she says she doesn't think she's going to take her life on November 1.
"I still have joy, and I still laugh and smile with my family and friends," Brittany explains in the video. "It doesn't seem like the right time right now."
That doesn't mean the death card is completely off the table.
"It will come because I feel myself getting sicker. It's happening each week," she said.
Certainly no one is wishing death upon her, and there's no question as to whether or not she's really sick.
Brittany's even become a spokesperson for the whole "dying with dignity" movement. Those are people who believe it should be up to you when to end your life if you're sick.
But people are upset and questioning Brittany's true intentions. Because of all the constant interviews, and all the charity she's received, some are asking: Is Brittany doing this for the greater good, or is Brittany Maynard just dying for attention?
