Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Julia.
Julia was born with heart disease.
Julia, a 9 month old baby, had her operation on Monday, the 23rd March for a defect called atrioventricular canal, which affects two of the valves in the middle of the heart.
Luckily Julia’s defect was found to be of mild severity. Once her operation was done, she was off the breathing machine in 30 minutes after arrival in the ICU. Julia stayed in the ICU for 2 more days as she had some mild obstruction in her throat as a result of the surgery and anesthetic.
Julia is seen here with her mother 2 days after surgery.
Gift of Life, Inc. and Russian Gift of Life USA are helping to fund medical training missions to Voronezh, where Julia was operated. The first mission took place in November 2013.
