NYC woman who asked to be off life support dies

NYC woman who asked to be off life support dies

A U.S. woman who initially battled her parents for the right to be taken off life support has died.
According to her mother, Sungeun Grace Lee died Sunday. She was 28.
The financial analyst was found to have a tumor on her brain stem in 2011.
She later asked to be taken off the ventilator, but her devoutly Christian parents opposed that.
A judge sided with Lee, permitting her to go off life support, but Lee changed her mind and stayed on the ventilator. She died at her parents' home, where she had been since November.
