Colorado woman who wrote letter to Maynard dies of cancer

A Colorado Springs woman who wrote an open letter urging Brittany Maynard not to end her life has died of breast cancer.

The death of 38-year-old Kara Tippetts was announced on her blog “Mundane Faithfulness” on Sunday.

Tippetts was an author, a mother of four and the wife of Colorado Springs pastor Jason Tippetts.

She published a book on her battle with cancer just days before Maynard made headlines by announcing she had moved to Oregon to take advantage of the state’s law allowing physician-assisted suicide.

Tippetts’ letter to Maynard spread online. In October, Tippetts told The Gazette of Colorado Springs that she wanted Maynard to “feel my love” and didn’t expect to become part of the national conversation over the right to die.
