Examples include Mr Cutter buying life insurance less than 24 hours before he dies, and Nancy writing down the day’s events in her diary. I found that especially heartbreaking, because it shows us how fragile life really is, From Nancy’s point of view, she just notes down the boring uneventful happenings of the day, but after she has been tragically murdered, the readers know the value of those small, uneventful happenings. In a way, Nancy’s diary is a metaphor for the hopes and aspirations of the family they never will never get to fulfil. Nancy writes down her feelings and hopes for a later day, but that day never

Disillusioned at the moment of death, the speaker in Emily Dickinson’s poem #465, plummets from her majestic spiritual expectations into the lowly position of simply being a carcass. Distracted by the anticipation of an impending ethereal experience, the speaker fails to recognize the significance of the fly at the moment of her death. Dickinson’s preliminary placement of the fly, “I heard a Fly buzz — when I died” in the beginning sentence offers a form of foreshadowing as well as emphasizes it’s roll (1). The speaker is encompassed by the ideas of her spiritual expectations and is waiting, “between the Heaves of Storm” for a heavenly excursion (4). However, the sound of the fly, an animal devoted to consuming the dead, brings reality to the audience that the speaker is simply a carcass waiting to be devoured.
Lori Mason was diagnosed with breast cancer three times, and in those three times of being diagnosed, in a span of six years. In Lori Mason’s story you can see people can get cancer more than once.

People may have been diagnosed with more than one type of cancer. This means more than one singled out disease that affects people because cancer is not a single virus, or a gene, or a small tumor (Gorski).
