Sept. 22, 2010 - PRLog -- When people think podcasts, they think Apple's iTunes, and now Lifeliner: The Judy Taylor Story by Toronto author Shireen Jeejeebhoy is available for weekly download, free, on iTunes. Not only can everyone listen to the latest free episode of the Lifeliner podcast on their favourite device, but iPad and iPhone owners can also then easily switch apps and purchase the eBook version through the iBooks app.

Lifeliner tells the poignant story of an ordinary Canadian heroine who made medical history as the first person in the world to live on intravenous feeding and who shared her joy of life with everyone she met. After blood clots annihilated the intestines of Judy Taylor, a remarkable series of events resulted in her becoming the first person to live at home on intravenous feeding – without eating any food whatsoever. Despite it being dangerous for her to swallow even so much as a crumb, she went on – for two decades – to cook for her family and friends and to encourage patients from Canada, to the US to Europe, and beyond, not to give up, to live a good life on TPN (Total Parenteral Nutrition).

Her tenacity to live, in partnership with the ingenuity of physician/researcher Dr. Khursheed Jeejeebhoy, resulted in the creation of Home TPN, an artificial feeding technique that improves the lives of tens of thousands of Americans, Canadians, Europeans, and Asians every year.

Taylor’s doctor was the author’s father; Shireen met Judy while a young girl and was amazed at seeing how Judy's spirit and beautiful smile inspired and encouraged so many to face and surmount their challenges, to live well and enjoy life. As Gloria Oren wrote on, giving Lifeliner five of five stars: “It is truly a fascinating and eye-opening story.” It is the kind of story that will make the daily commute go faster.

Lifeliner, a book written for the general public, has scooped awards in the US for Editor’s Choice, Publisher’s Choice, and Reader's Choice and won Best Biography in the Reader Views Reviewers Choice Award. It is available in print at Amazon, Chapters, and bookstores around the world; in multi-format eBook at iBookstore, Amazon Kindle store, Barnes & Noble,, Sony Reader store, and soon to come KoboBooks; in free podcast on the author's website and iTunes at Besides detailing the evolution of TPN, it is gripping readers everywhere with its amazing story of a brave woman who rose above a terrifying medical crisis and thrived.
