Host a Screening!

Short Film 36 of 50 in the LIFE Before Death documentary series about the global crisis in untreated pain and the dramatic life changing affect palliative care services can deliver to patients and their families around the world.

In “Poetry in Motion” we hear the personal story of Bernard Ng, a former police officer turned poet when his cancer patient pain became so debilitating he considered suicide.

Bernard shares the story of how his life was resurrected through pain management, palliative care and hospice.

“I think they have done wonders for me. From a person who is very suicidal, today I look forward to living — so there is a dramatic change. I once gave up living. I once told my wife, and myself ‘I don’t have quality of life — what is the use of living?’ But today I see it the other way — I want to go on living. With medication and the doctor’s help — I’m OK.”

Featuring: Bernard (Singapore).
