Lifeliner: The Judy Taylor Story
The official one-minute book trailer of Lifeliner, the biography about the woman who didn't eat for 20 years and so pioneered the medical technology of intravenous feeding used by so many to keep them well nourished.
People with AIDS, Cystic Fibrosis, many bowel ailments, badly injured would have a harder time staying well without this technology called TPN or Total Parenteral Nutrition.Lifeliner In Short

A very gripping and touching tale. The book does a good job of balancing the science behind Judy's medical procedure, with the emotional impact it had on her life.
