HomeMaklakov, Evgeny

Fifteen-Year-Old Evgeny Has A Heart Defect. Heart Surgery Can Save His Life. Please Help.

Evgeny has coarctation of the aorta, a birth defect. The aorta is a major artery leading out of the heart. Coarctation means the artery has narrowed. Without treatment most people with this condition die before age 40. Evgeny is from Lipetsk, Russia.

Evgeny's mother, Nadezhda, made the long journey from Russia with him.

Gift of Life, Inc. and Russian Gift of Life, USA raised the funds necessary for Mikhail's surgery and travel expenses thanks to your generosity.

Evgeny was successfully operated at Saint Francis Hospital in Roslyn, New York on December 1, 2010.
