FILE - This undated file photo provided by the Maynard family shows Brittany Maynard, a 29-year-old terminally ill woman who plans to die under Oregon's law that allows the terminally ill to end their own lives. Sean Crowley, spokesman from the group Compassion & Choices, said late Sunday, Nov. 2, 2014, that Maynard was surrounded by family Saturday when she took lethal medication prescribed by a doctor and died. She was weeks shy of her 30th birthday.
