Story of Woman's Courage and Medical Innovation Top Choice for Readers
Date:4/28/2008

hare her story to offer hope to all those going through crises of their own.

Despite her illness, Judy was an active mother and community volunteer. She, along with her determined doctor, helped bring 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.

"Lifeliner," available online, is a book written for the lay audience. Besides detailing the evolution of TPN it is gripping readers around the world with its inspiring 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." And run she did, right into the medical history books. Read more at http://jeejeebhoy.ca.
