I Am Breathing reminds us what it is to be alive. It is the story of a man full of humour and humility during his unimaginable last months. Within a year, Neil Platt goes from being a healthy 30-something British bloke with a great sense of humour to becoming completely paralysed from the neck down, thanks to the devastating illness he has inherited –known as ALS, MND or Lou Gehrig's disease–. As his body gets weaker, his perspective on life changes. His humour remains, but new wisdom emerges: "It's amazing how adaptable we are when we have to be. It's what separates us and defines us as human beings".
