Brittany Maynard, a 29-year-old woman who suffers from terminal brain cancer, has decided to postpone her decision to voluntarily end her life on November 1.

In a new video released October 29 on YouTube by Compassion & Choices, an end-of-life choice group, Maynard explains that now may not be the right time for her to end her life. The young woman tells the camera she can feel herself getting sicker each week, but she will wait to end her life until her suffering becomes greater. In the spring of 2014, Maynard was given six months or less to live by doctors.

Her original video was posted by CompassionChoices on October 6, 2014. You can watch her interview below:

The Internet overwhelmingly responded with support of Maynard’s decision to keep living.
