Less than a month ago, Brittany Maynard made headlines for deciding to take her own life after she was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
The pretty brunette shared her wish to see the Grand Canyon before her death, and last week — "thanks to the kindness of Americans around the country who came forward to make my 'bucket list' dream come true," Brittany wrote on her website — she was able to take a trip to the popular tourist site.
"The Canyon was breathtakingly beautiful, and I was able to enjoy my time with the two things I love most: my family and nature," the 29-year-old wrote.
But continued signs of her deterioration were lurking nearby. A day after her trip, Brittany suffered her "worst seizure thus far," leaving her temporarily paralyzed for the rest of the day.
"The seizure was a harsh reminder that my symptoms continue to worsen as the tumor runs its course," she shared.
After hearing she had Glioblastoma multiforme — an aggressive brain tumor — in January, the brunette beauty decided she didn't want to die in pain.

"My dream is that every terminally ill American has access to the choice to die on their own terms with dignity," the advocate wrote. "Please take an active role to make this a reality."
Currently, only five states — including Brittany's home state of Oregon — have a Death with Dignity Act. She qualified for the medication, which she plans to use for a peaceful death on Nov. 1 — surrounded by her husband, mother, stepfather and best friend.
