Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Matvey.

Matvey was born with heart disease and in his short life, he has already had three open-heart surgeries.


Matvey is three years old and needs two stents. Dr. Gorbachevsky, a specialist in pulmonary hypertension, examined Matvey at the Bakulev Center. He recommends that he get help soon.

The Bakulev Center has accepted Matvey for open-heart surgery. However, there are no funds available for endovascular operation he needs to save his life.

Without help, Matvey will get worse and may not live into adulthood. With your help we can save Matvey's life.



Update: Matvey was successfully operated on August 11, 2017.

Matvey's parents, Irina and Andrei, thank everyone who helped save their little boy's life.
