It's no wonder that pianist-composer Harry Connick Jr., 50, has found a muse in his wife, Jill Goodacre.

Why Brittany Maynard, the Terminally Ill 29-Year-Old, May Choose to Live Another Day

Why Brittany Maynard, the Terminally Ill 29-Year-Old, May Choose to Live Another Day
“I risk it every day that I wake up. And I do it because I still feel good enough.”

Brittany Maynard, 29, didn’t have a choice when it came to being diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.
