Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Sasha.

Sasha is two years old. He was born with heart disease.

After my son’s birth, I began to look with new eyes at the Channel One and Rusfond stories about children who need help. I began to donate money to the extent that I could. And I prayed for one thing, that my little Sasha would be spared any misfortune. Problems with Sasha’s heart were revealed already at the maternity hospital. They kept him under observation, but each visit to the doctor became more frightening: there was no improvement. Sasha is often sick. He is blue around his lips and under his eyes. A month ago, the doctor said there is no way to avoid an operation. Surgeons at the Tomsk Cardiac Center have offered to close the defect without cutting open my little boy's chest. The operation is expensive, we’re just not able to collect such a large sum. " Marina Kharinova, Omsk Region.

UPDATE 05/21/2015

Tomsk Pediatric Cardiologist, Professor Victoria Savchenko says: "Given his age and the topography of the heart defect, Sasha needs endovascular closure of his atrial septal defect."

TOTAL COST = $5,076.00
UPDATE 07/14/2015
Sasha was successfully operated at the Tomsk Cardiac Center on June 30, 2015. Sasha's mother, Marina, thanks everyone for their generous support, especially Russian Gift of Life USA, GTRK "Irtish" television viewers and readers of Rusfond.
