Poignant documentary to be screened at Colchester General Hospital
10:31am Thursday 12th September 2013 in News
A POIGNANT documentary about a young father who becomes paralysed from the neck down will be screened at Colchester General Hospital.
I Am Breathing tells of Neil Platt, a Yorkshireman diagnosed with motor neurone disease (MND) shortly after the birth of his son Oscar.
It will be shown at the postgraduate medical centre on Wednesday, October 2 from 6pm.
Organiser Lea Kirton, palliative care clinical nurse specialist, has asked for donations of £3 to go towards the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
She said: “I’ve already seen the film and found it enlightening and an eye-opener to me as a health care professional.
“Obviously, it’s sad but it also contains a lot of humour and I would encourage people to come along.”
Representatives from the Colchester and North East Essex branch of the MND Association will attend the screening, talk to people and give out information.
