Twelve-Year-Old Akbota Has A Heart Defect. Open Heart Surgery Can Save Her Life. Please Help.

Akbota is a very well behaved and friendly twelve-year-old. You’d never know she has a life threatening heart defect. Akbota is generally a bit shy and quiet. She needs open heart surgery to have a valve in her heart repaired or replaced. Without the surgery she will not likely live long.

Akbota's father made the long journey from Kazakhstan with her.

Akbota was successfully operated at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota on August 18, 2011.
