Helen's Inspiration to Life

Her Way – Helen’s Inspiration to Life is written by Ingrid Zerafa for the Action for Breast Cancer Foundation. British-born Helen Muscat came to Malta after marrying psychiatrist Dr Peter Muscat. With a very solid background in nursing, Helen made a difference in Malta’s healthcare provision when she worked with other like-minded people to introduce Hospice in Malta. She was also in the core team that set up Zammit Clapp Hospital, where she was matron. She was also matron at St Philip’s and St James private hospitals.

The book documents Helen’s approach to life through many testimonials. She was renowned for her charismatic character, integrity, mindfulness, and positive and practical approach towards life. Because of her many connections, the book includes first-hand information from her husband Peter and insights on Helen’s philosophy of life from Michelle Muscat, wife of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, Kate Gonzi, wife of former Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi, Helen’s numerous friends, healthcare professionals and including complementary therapists, whose advice she sought.

The book can be bought online through Agenda and Books Distributors Ltd. Otherwise one may post a cheque for €25 to Horizons Triq l-Iskultur, Ħal Qormi QRM 3580, Malta, and they will send it by registered post.
