Lifeliner: The Judy Taylor Story

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Judy Taylor relished her simple happy life. She had a loving husband, three young daughters, a beautiful suburban home. But after intestinal blood clots annihilated her guts, Judy faced starving to death in a cold Toronto hospital. The year was 1970. Judy lived two more decades without eating. "Lifeliner" is about her inspirational story from death to life, from ordinary woman to medical pioneer.

About Shireen Jeejeebhoy

I write a mix of books: novels, biography, short nonfiction. I set my novels in Toronto, my home for most of my life, a city of contradictions and ripe with conflict possibilities. My debut book, LIFELINER, is set in Ontario, but also travels down to New York and across the pond to Sweden.

My life is one big question mark, has been ever since I sustained a closed head injury (or mild traumatic brain injury or concussion, whichever moniker is fashionable) in a four-car collision. But my writing keeps me grounded, my photography takes me to other places.

When I'm not writing, reading, taking photographs, I'm hunting for good coffee and sensational chocolate.

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.

Review by: Mike Wise on July 26, 2010 :
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.
