Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Karina.

Karina was born with heart disease.

Karina is seven years old and has a pacemaker.

She had the most complex defect having problems with three of the four cardiac valves, and a previously placed pacemaker system needing revision. After twelve hours in the operating room, Karina recovered amazingly quickly. She came off the ventilator after less than two hours, was smiling and drinking the very next morning, and left the Intensive Care Unit on Sunday, April 9th just three days after surgery.

The Gift of Life, Inc. and Russian Gift of Life USA are helping to fund medical training missions to Nizhny Novgorod, where Karina was operated. The first mission took place in November 2014.

Karina was successfully operated on April 6, 2017.
