(PIX11) -- Brittany Maynard, the 29-year-old terminally ill woman who notoriously chose her own death date so she could "die with dignity," has crossed off another line from her bucket list, she wrote on her blog.
After being diagnosed with a severe brain tumor, doctors gave her a life expectancy of about 14 months, and they said the days leading up to her death would likely be slow, debilitating and painful.
Maynard chose Nov. 1, two days after her husband's birthday, as her date to die. She and her family traveled to the Grand Canyon this week, a sight she described as "breathtaking" on her blog.
The Canyon was breathtakingly beautiful, and I was able to enjoy my time with the two things I love most: my family and nature.
Maynard also gave an update on her failing health, saying that it's impossible to forget her stage 4 cancer.
Severe headaches and neck pain are never far away, and unfortunately the next morning I had my worst seizure thus far. My speech was paralyzed for quite a while after I regained consciousness, and the feeling of fatigue continued for the rest of the day.
Maynard and her family moved to Oregon, one of the few states in the U.S. with a "Death with Dignity Act." She told People magazine that she plans to drink 100 capsules of secobarbital dissolved in water to end her life in a "peaceful and painless" way.
