Sunday Death News Round Up
Sharing our pick of this week’s interesting death news reads from different parts of the internet:
Brittany Maynard, “Death with Dignity” advocate
Most of you have probably heard by now about Brittany Maynard, who in March was diagnosed with the deadliest form of brain cancer — glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). Brittany was told that she would have approximately 6 months left to live. She decided to take matters into her own hands and has chosen the option of death with dignity. In a *NEW* interview with Refinery29, she explains her decision and shares her opinion: that everyone with terminal illness should have the right to make the choice that she has.
Boxes of Death exhibit
What started out as an art school project in the cramped basement of Seattle’s OK Hotel has quickly grown into a respected touring showcase of both rising stars and well-established figures within the art community. Making death news again for its fifth year, “Boxes of Death” (an exhibition for which 50 artists are each given a coffin to work with) has added new venues and attracted talented artists on a regular basis.
Tricia Somers was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. She met an angel who changed her life when she was recovering from a procedure at a hospital in Harrisburg, Pa. Steve Hartman goes “On The Road.”
In tribute to all the nurses who work hard everyday, we acknowledge the Legacy of Nurses.
