Date:4/28/2008

TORONTO, April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Readers in Europe and other parts of the world are enjoying Lifeliner: The Judy Taylor Story, the debut book from London-born author Shireen Jeejeebhoy. It tells the moving and poignant story of a Canadian woman who made medical history as the first person to live long-term strictly on intravenous feeding without eating any food.

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

Judy Taylor's doctor was the author's father, Dr Khursheed Jeejeebhoy, and his groundbreaking research on artificial feeding and nutrition helped form the medical foundation of Total Parenteral Nutrition, or TPN, as it is known today.

With thousands of patients in Europe facing artificial feeding issues, the book has widespread medical interest. A European study showed that cancer was the number one reason patients in Belgium, Denmark, France, Poland, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, The Netherlands and Germany went on Home TPN or Home Parenteral Nutrition at 39 per cent followed by people suffering from Crohn's (19 per cent).

Besides its medical story, the book 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 Psychology

- "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
