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


Ksenia is fifteen years old. She was admitted to the hospital with severe shortness of breath. She previously had open-heart surgery in 2004 at age six.

Ksenia's echocardiogram now showed that the valve she received in 2004 is too small for her at age fifteen. $3,204 is needed to cover the costs of the
ATS replacement valve that can save Liana's life.
Russian Gift of Life USA raised the funds needed to save Ksenia's life. 


Ksenia was successfully operated at the Bakulev Center in Moscow on September 26, 2013.

Dr. Sergei Gorbachevsky, a leading specialist at the Bakulev Center, surgically replaced Ksenia's mitral valve. Ksenia was discharged in October 2013 and returned home to Kemerovo a healthy girl. Her parents thank everyone who helped their daughter become a healthy child.
