Sept. 28, 2010 - PRLog -- When people think podcasts, they think Apple's iTunes, which makes downloading and listening to a book on the iPod, iPhone, and iPad quick and convenient. For the first time ever, Lifeliner: The Judy Taylor Story by Toronto author Shireen Jeejeebhoy is available for weekly download, free, on iTunes, as well as through the author's website. 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 easily switch apps and purchase the eBook version through the iBooks app or Kindle owners can download it for reading on the go.

Lifeliner tells the compelling 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, for neighbours and her health team, 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). As one patient wrote on the author's website: "[Judy] saved MY spirit!!"

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 who have cancer, AIDS, malnutrition, trauma, or bowel disorders, to name a few.

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 Diana Rohini LaVigne wrote on Amazon.com, giving Lifeliner four of five stars: “[Lifeliner is a] compelling story….Reading it will make you laugh, smile, cringe, cry and most importantly, think. If you want inspiration, Lifeliner has no shortage packed into its pages.”   It is the kind of story that will make the daily commute go faster or make waiting in the doctor's office a bit easier.

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, Smashwords.com, Sony Reader store, and soon to come KoboBooks; in free podcast on the author's website and iTunes at http://itunes.apple.com/podcast/lifeliner-the-judy-taylor.... 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.
