Danila's Surgery a Success!

Nine-year-old Danila underwent surgery today at Saint Francis Hospital. At 9:00 am, Dr. Sean Levchuck came from the operating room to the visitor's lounge. He told Danila's mother, Tatiana, that everything had gone well and that Danila's PDA (patent ductus arteriosus) has been closed for good.

Danila's recovery went very well and he is being discharged tonight.

Special thanks to Nina Batalin for volunteering at the hospital today. Danila's mother and father are very grateful for all the support.
