Blind, Disabled Child Prodigy’s Autobiography Unveils Pitfalls in American Medical and School Systems, and Her Endless Shine
Wappingers Falls, NY (PRWEB) July 27, 2005
Fifteen years after her mother’s victory over injustice, Shirley Cheng (http://www.shirleycheng.com), a blind and physically disabled author of three books, has released her 700-page autobiography, “The Revelation of a Star’s Endless Shine: A Young Woman’s Autobiography of a 20-Year Tale of Trials & Tribulations,” to tell the world the horrific trials and tribulations her mother and herself had experienced, revealing many pitfalls in American medical and school systems. Along with the eye-opening accounts, Shirley shares words of encouragement and enlightenment, telling others that there will always be light at the end of the dark tunnel.
In July of 1990, on the morning of Friday the thirteenth, Connecticut Child Protective Services forcefully and wrongly took away Shirley Cheng, a seven-year-old child with severe juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, from her mother Juliet Cheng. The Reason for the custody loss? Juliet did not agree to have Shirley operated on six of her joints at once when Shirley did not even have any medicine to control her inflammation. The five-month custody battle between the mother and the doctor–and her victory–gained international attention and support. The case was reported on The Associated Press, The New York Times, Newsweek; and Juliet and her lawyer–a former mayor of Hartford, Connecticut, for eleven years–appeared on CBS This Morning.
Replete with fifty photographs, The Revelation of a Star’s Endless Shine unveils the gripping, never before told tale of child prodigy Shirley Cheng–a blind and physically disabled victim and survivor of severe juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and more so of falsehood in American medical system–and her loving mother, Juliet Cheng. Enter a world of terrors, struggles, dreams, and triumphs in this true life story spanning twenty years as mother and daughter travel the world seeking care and compassion. From Shirley’s painful diagnosis of JRA as an infant and the 1990 international news of Juliet’s victory over injustice in her custody case, to their acceptance of a harsh and devastating fate, and the elation of Shirley’s various academic and personal achievements, this autobiography will leave the reader inspired and thinking twice about life’s true values and meanings.
ISBN: 1-4116-1860-2, Trade paperback

“Why is it possible in America, the land of the free, that a parent cannot disagree with a doctor’s recommendation for treatment? If they do, their child could be taken from them. Social Services can be called in. How could it also be possible for a hospital to take parents to court for intercepting unwanted treatment?” asked Christina Francine for Reviewer’s Bookwatch on Midwest Book Review.
“Well, in this great nation supposedly run by the people for the people, parental rights aren’t what they used to be. We all know people who neglect or abuse their children and intervention is necessary for them. This is not the same.”
“Shirley’s unique way of writing further provides readers with a window to her intelligence, insight, and nature. Her matter-of-fact, original style and ability to prove a point is powerful.”
“She reveals how some doctors lie on their patient’s documents and when cannot offer a solution or diagnosis for a disease often label the victim as mentally ill or depressed. She tells of instances when in a hospital, a staff member turned on her room light in the middle of the night waking her to clean the room, and of when they wouldn’t help her sit to relieve her bladder.”
“The state of our medical, insurance, and parental rights needs a severe overhaul.”
“A disturbing, and enlightening read. Authentic, honest, and profound. Will change reader’s outlook.”
“The Revelation of a Star’s Endless Shine truly lives up to its title,” said Rebecca Henderson for AllBooks Reviews.
“It’s a story of amazing courage and human strengths, for someone to achieve so much, after having being deprived of so much is an awe-inspiring feat,” wrote editor, author, and teacher Angela Hooper, Spain.
Shirley Cheng (b. 1983), a blind and physically disabled author and poet of three books by age twenty, was diagnosed with severe juvenile rheumatoid arthritis at only eleven months old. Due to years of hospitalization between America and China, she received no schooling until age eleven. Having achieved grade level in all areas after about 180 days in a special education class in elementary school, she was transferred to a regular sixth grade class in middle school. Ever since, she had been a high honor student, and her high school overall average is 97 (3.9 GPA with no AP factors). Unfortunately, Shirley lost her eyesight at the age of seventeen. After a successful eye surgery, she hopes to earn multiple science doctorates from Harvard University.
Shirley is also an advocate of parental rights in children’s medical care to help today’s loving parents protect and keep custody of their ill children. When doctors ask yes or no, parents should have the right to say no.
Shirley Cheng is also the author of Daring Quests of Mystics, and Dance with Your Heart: Tales and Poems That the Heart Tells (ISBN: 1-4116-1858-0). She had been published twice before her writing career.

Question by spiralling: For clever medical types who can dumb things down – psoriatic arthritis?
In the past 3 years I’ve been getting really sore thighs, knees, groin, neck and hands (although the hands thing could easily be attributed to how much time I spend on my computer).
I have also developed this horrible lumpy rash on my elbows and knees. Recently my mum mentioned that a few of my female cousins have this thing called psoriatic arthritis and it sounds like what I have. When I went to the doctor she was really nice but she said there was no test for it so I should just try to keep warm, do loads of exercise and come back when I had an inflamed joint to show her. The thing is, they never seem to get obscenely swollen or inflamed so I have no reason to go back. But it’s really uncomfortable, I find myself having to go walking around the city all evening because sitting still is so sore.
Any tips or advice? Because I am purely self-diagnosed I’m not going to go out and buy any drugs or anything. But I would be keen to try anything else that might help.
Answer by ignoramus
Since one of the treatments is non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, why not get some Advil and try to see if that helps?
Also,, see a dermatologist and a rheumatologist.

Sartell, MN (PRWEB) June 18, 2012
Rejuv Medical in Sartell, MN is quickly becoming the go-to resource for people in perfect health or those suffering from a variety of medical issues. The company is offering two types of stem-cell treatments. Dr. Joel Baumgartner is a board certified physician with specialized fellowship training in non-surgical orthopedics and sports medicine. Rejuv Medical is under Dr. Baumgartners direction, as are all stem-cell treatments performed at the Sartell location.
The stem-cell treatments offered by Rejuv Medical are non-controversial. Since the treatments are derived from the patients own body, not from a donor, there is no risk of rejection or cross infection. The company is using a persons very own cells, concentrating the cells and putting them into the area of degeneration. A person suffering with consistent pain no longer has to consider making a moral compromise when selecting stem-cell treatment. Many medical studies cite stem cells have the capability to regenerate cartilage, ligaments and tendons. With the current research, and success of stem cell procedures, many Orthopedic conditions that currently require surgery probably will become obsolete.
Rejuv Medical offers Regenerative Stem Cell-SD (Same Day) – A bone marrow based stem cell procedure, and Regenerative Stem Cell-SCP – (Stem Cell Plasma) which is performed through an IV blood draw. Both of these treatments are Regenexx
Advocate, Survivor Seeks Contribution for New Parental Rights in Children’s Medical Care Advocacy Book to Put an End to Injustice
Wappingers Falls, NY (PRWEB) January 10, 2007
Shirley Cheng (http://www.shirleycheng.com), a blind and physically disabled 23-year-old advocate of parental rights in children’s medical care in the American medical system, seeks contribution for her new parental rights advocacy book for this point: “When doctors ask yes or no, parents should have the right to say no.” –Shirley Cheng
Shirley is looking for articles (unbiased, factual), personal experience stories, case studies, from medical personnel (doctors, psychologists, etc.), lawyers, reporters, journalists, writers, parents, survivors (children), and anyone who has involved in this issue or has written about this issue, about the injustice system that strips the rights from parents and that takes the child away from their parents over medical disputes.
She is especially interested in the cases of Abraham Cherrix (Virginia, 2006), Edward and Michele Wernecke concerning their daughter Katie (Texas, 2005), Corissa Mueller (2002), Pam Anderson concerning her son, Anthony Mitchell (2000), Miguel Regino and Adela Martinez concerning their daughter Anamarie Martinez-Regino (New Mexico, 2000), Sherry and Paul Lipscomb (Ohio, 2000), Valerie Emerson (Maine, 1998), and Tina Phifer concerning her daughter Amkia (1997); and Shirley is also very interested in any articles anyone has written concerning her own mother Juliet Cheng’s custody case in 1990 that made international headlines.
Shirley will need permission to reprint any contribution in her new book and will give full credits to the contributors at the back of the book. No monetary rewards will be given, but every contributor will receive a free copy of the book and can buy the books at a discount. Please e-mail Shirley via http://www.shirleycheng.com Please e-mail first before submitting anything.
Shirley Cheng (b. 1983), a blind and physically disabled motivational speaker, author, poet, and parental rights advocate, has the vision of a better America for both parents and children. She is a victim and miracle survivor of not only her painful disease–severe juvenile rheumatoid arthritis–but more so of serious faults in American medical system, including two custody cases her mother, Juliet Cheng, had battled and won after disagreeing with doctors’ recommended treatments, one of which lasted for five months in 1990 in Connecticut that made international headlines on major media, like The New York Times, Washington Post, and The Associated Press, and gained the support of Katharine Hepburn and Taiwan’s former first lady. Juliet and her lawyer, George Athanson–a former mayor of Hartford, Connecticut, for eleven years–appeared on CBS This Morning show with Paula Zahn. Shirley was also the victim of abusive behavior and mistreatment from one-to-one aides for years while attending public schools. Using her new voice as an adult, Shirley now fights to protect today’s parents and children and the future of America. She hopes to bring awareness to the public with her new parental rights advocacy book, and her 700-page autobiography, The Revelation of a Star’s Endless Shine: A Young Woman’s Autobiography of a 20-Year Tale of Trials & Tribulations.
Should parents have the right to disagree with doctors’ recommended treatments for their children? Should the state send parents to court just because the parent told the hospital that aspirin is worsening their child’s condition? Is it okay for the judge to call the parent a child abuser when the parent intercepted unwanted, harmful treatment for their child?
One voice is not enough–we need to work together to put an end to the injustice and put parental rights back into the hands of loving parents.
Let us turn our country into a true nation run by the people for the people.
