An inspiring summer read, it tells the poignant story of a young Canadian mother who made medical history as the first person to live decades on intravenous feeding without eating any food and who shared her joy of life with everyone she met.

With about 40,000 patients in the US using TPN (Total Parenteral Nutrition) every year, the book has widespread medical interest. Many patients with cancer and AIDS ultimately die of malnutrition, yet good nutrition leads to more effective medication therapy. American studies show that cancer is the largest growing component of existing Home TPN programs, comprising up to 40 per cent of new admissions per year.

The book has scooped awards in the US for Editor's Choice and Publisher's Choice and won Best Biography in the Reader Views Reviewers Choice Award.

Judy Taylor's doctor was the author's father, Dr Khursheed Jeejeebhoy; his groundbreaking research on artificial feeding and nutrition helped form the medical foundation of TPN. These two pioneers brought TPN out of the realm of science fiction and into reality, allowing more patients, whether they have bowel disease, cancer, or AIDS, to live longer, fulfilled lives.

Besides its medical story, "Lifeliner" is also winning accolades for its powerful inspirational story telling:

- "Jeejeebhoy's style of writing sets the right pace as we follow Judy's

medical difficulties." Gloria Oren, Writer and Editor

- "Shireen Jeejeebhoy has written an extraordinary account of Judy Taylor

and her fight for life." Carol Hoyer, Ph.D. Family Psycho
