As If There Were No Tomorrow by Maleen Fischer
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.5 MB
Overview: At the age of three, Maleen Fischer was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension and, as there was no treatment for this fatal disease at the time in Austria, the doctors sent her home. Her life expectancy was only a few years. Since this initial diagnosis, Maleen has battled this disease every day of her life with amazing courage and resilience. Few people around the world suffer from pulmonary hypertension; thus, researching a cure for this disease would not be an important endeavor for science. A small bag that she always carries at her hips pumps medication directly into her heart via a cathether every 30 seconds – it is the reason she is still alive today. In As If There Were No Tomorrow, this fascinating 18-year-old young woman tells her story for the first time. Maleens inspirational message: "Every persons life and fate has positive aspects. You only have to search for them."
