Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Kirill.

Kirill was born with a complex congenital heart defect.

Kirill’s operation was the first of its kind done at this centre. Dr. Novick taught the local senior surgeon Dr. Orlov about the critical and careful steps to take in the most complex of surgeries requiring first the enlarging of a hole in the heart, and then a precisely placed patch around the enlargement. Kirill was recovering as expected - slow but sure - when the team reviewed him the next day.

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

Kirill was successfully operated on April 13, 2017.
