Dying in piece(s) or dying in peace?
This is the story of Kim. She suffered from glioblastoma, an incurable brain tumor. Glioblastoma is just another word for "Ikigami". She died at the age of 23, but before that, she had been looking for something that would help her die in peace at such a young age. She decided that this thing would be: freezing her brain.
This cryonic project was probably what helped Kim best before her death from brain cancer.
