AS IF THERE WERE NO TOMORROW

AS IF THERE WERE NO TOMORROW

The courageous battle of a little girl against her deadly disease

At the age of three, doctors sent Maleen Fischer home with the fatal diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension. She was expected to live a few years at the most. With unbelievable courage and resilience, she has been fighting for her life. Pulmonary hypertension is a rare disease. Therefore, there is no cure, and the pharmaceutical industry has done little research to cure an illness that affects so few. However, Maleen and her family have convinced not only numerous scientists, but pharmaceutical companies as well, to research this deadly disease. She is still alive due to a small bag around her hips which pumps medication every 90 seconds through a catheter to her heart. In As If There Were No Tomorrow, the now-20-year old tells her story for the first time: her fight to stay alive, her zest for life, the moments of despair—and how hope can beat death.

From mountain farmer’s son to American multi-millionaire: The bestselling biography of the Kiehl’s founder

He was a national ski idol who had won numerous alpine World Cup races. Then, he had a falling out with the Austrian Skiing Association and, for the sake of love, immigrated to New York. There, he turned the small family-owned pharmacy of his father-in-law, Aaron Morse, into a global cosmetics corporation, which he then sold for a nine-digit sum to cosmetics giant L’Oréal. In My American Dream, Kiehl’s mastermind Klaus Heidegger reflects on the fascinating journey of a poor mountain farmer’s son who was able to realize his childhood dream. The bestselling biography is a compelling book that shows how everyone can, with diligence, perseverance, and resilience, achieve their dreams. With a foreword by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
