- "Shireen's pen has all the force of a great storyteller and the
artistic skills of reviving a past scene in its most original form. She
shows us the situation, taking us to the time and place of the event
without throwing in a single unnecessary word." Ernest Dempsey,
Reviewer and Author
Because of her illness, Judy volunteered wherever needed, even travelling to New York state to encourage others. Shireen met Judy one summer while a young girl and wanted to bring Judy's brand of inspiration to those facing crises of their own. As one woman wrote: "Judy saved my spirit."
"Lifeliner," available online, is a book written for the lay audience. Besides detailing the evolution of TPN, it is gripping readers everywhere with its fascinating story of a brave woman, who, together with her inventive doctor, made medical history.
"When they sent her home on TPN, no one knew how long she would live or what her quality of life would be like," Shireen says. "As far as Judy was concerned, life itself was good enough and she had no intention of lying on the couch all day. She had been given a second chance and she was running with it."
