A sad ending to the saga of Grace Lee, the 28-year-old  who had battled her parents for the right to be taken off of life support.

Lee died Sunday when her ventilator malfunctioned.

She had fought to have the plug pulled last year, but later changed her mind.

A brain tumor left Lee paralyzed and unable to breathe.

Lee’s brother said  she was happy during her final days.

“She was still smiling at us, so happy,” Danny Lee told the Daily News . “We will miss her and love her always.”
