Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Denis.
Denis was born with heart disease.
Denis is a two-year-old baby boy diagnosed with Transposition of the Great Arteries, or TGA. This is not his first operation. In his two years of life, this sweet boy has had two prior surgeries. On this trip, he had a Fontan Procedure. His surgery was performed by Dr. Orlov and assisted by Dr. Novick and Dr. Shirokov. He recovered from surgery like a champion and was discharged from the ICU on Monday!
The Gift of Life, Inc. and Russian Gift of Life USA are helping to fund medical training missions to Nizhny, where Denis was operated. The first mission took place in November 2014.
Denis was successfully operated on September 29, 2016.
