Furthermore, students should have the need to relax before the next three more months of school.

However, after a few weeks the doctors decided to do a final medical exam on her body to decide whether she is going to lose her kidney and two legs.

However, the quality of her life would be greatly diminished and she would have to suffer from the side effects including loss of hair and a burnt scalp. Because the rest of her body was young and healthy, she would likely have to physically hang on for awhile as the cancer ate her brain. So instead, she chose death with dignity. She uprooted her life and moved from California to Oregon which is one of three states that legalizes death with dignity. Death with dignity is a term to describe the process when terminally ill patients who are facing an imminent death choose to shorten the dying process and seek medication that would give them a peaceful and dignified death (Ubel).
