REFLECTION ESSAY 2 The End Families Facing Death Reflection Essay In this documentary Phil Francis was diagnosed with liver cancer, Dennis is his hospice nurse. In the beginning Phil talks about the doctors saying it would take a miracle for him to beat his cancer and he talks about being spiritual and hoping he can be that miracle. He seems to be ok with his diagnosis at first but as the film goes on Phil seems to get angry, he begins arguing with his wife and daughter telling his daughter that she can leave and he will say what he wants because he is the one dying not them. I believe the family was going to counseling to help him cope with his illness and for his family to be able to express how they feel about the situation and want him to know they are there for him no matter what. Toward the end his sister comes to see him and they talk about how he always wanted to be rich and the life he made for him and his family. He was one who never wanted any help he wanted to do things for himself and you could see that in this film, his wife talked about him trying to get out of bed himself to use the bathroom and he ended up not making it in time and how embarrassed he was because of it. In the end when his daughters were told it was almost that time they were having a hard time but seemed to be doing alright after he passed. Dennis the hospice nurse talked about how he was upset when Phil passed because he built a relationship with him while taking care of him. Suzie Gonzalez was a nineteen year old girl who had been diagnosed with bone cancer.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
