Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Vanya.

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

“Vanya was born prematurely, spent ten days in intensive care. They discovered he has a heart defect. My son was under the constant supervision of the cardiologist. We hoped that the defect would close on its own in one year. But our little boy is already two years old, but his heart has not recovered. Vanya has started to have shortness of breath and blue lips. But we were lucky: in April we got to see to cardiac surgeons from Tomsk. They determined that the defect has increased significantly, the right ventricle of his heart has increased. The Tomsk doctors have proposed closing the heart defect without cutting open Vanya’s chest. But we cannot manage to pay for such an operation! We live on my husband’s modest salary.” Alisa Alexeeva, Omsk Region.

UPDATE 06/05/2015

Tomsk Pediatric Cardiologist, Professor Victoria Savchenko says: "Endovascular closure of the atrial septal defect is indicated for Vanya."

TOTAL COST = $5,000.00


Vanya was successfully operated on July 16, 2015.
