Photographer Andrew George said hospital administrators rejected his request to photograph and document the thoughts of dying patients, except for Dr. Marwa Kilani, medical director of palliative care at Providence Holy Cross Hospital in Los Angeles, who agreed the stories were important to share. The exhibit "Right, Before I Die" includes 20 photos of dying people, along with what they told George about their hopes and dreams, good times and bad. The Associated Press (08/20)
