Shirley Jewett can't stop talking
about her lung transplant. That's pretty
good for a woman who could barely
catch her breath, let alone carry on a
crusade for this life-saving medical procedure.
After being diagnosed with a fatal
illness and given less than a year to live,
Shirley dug in her heels and said there
has to be a way. And she found it. Now this unstoppable lady is becoming
the poster person for organ transplants. She brings the message of
inspiration, healing and hope to people with life-threatening illnesses
and their families, to those waiting for transplant and to patients who
have had transplants and have become discouraged. She does it with
style and humor and the conviction of one who has been to the edge of
eternity and come back.
She dedicates her time to spreading the word about organ transplants
and the importance of being an organ donor through guest
appearances on talk shows and speaking engagements to support groups
and organizations. In all she does, she infuses listeners with positive
energy and the vision of victory.
Through her debut book, I Call My New Lung Tina, Shirley Jewett
is breathing life into the fascinating and sometimes controversial topic
of organ donation and transplantation.
