Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Gleb.

Gleb was born with heart disease. He is fifteen months old.

Gleb was the eighth case of the October 2016 surgical training mission to Voronezh, Russia. Dr. Bykov, assisted by Dr. Denis Greznov, performed open heart surgery on Glen to close his ventricular septal defect. 

Gleb awoke and was taken off the ventilator immediately after surgery. He left the Intensive Care Unit the next day.


The Gift of Life, Inc. and Russian Gift of Life USA are helping to fund medical training missions to Voronezh, where Gleb was operated. The first mission took place in November 2013.


Gleb was successfully operated on October 25, 2016.
