Slava and his mother, Veronika, arrived at JFK International Airport this evening. They were accompanied by Slava's Russian doctor, cardiac surgeon, Sergey Bykov. Russian Gift of Life volunteer Elena Miloradovich and Executive Director Michael Yurieff met them at the airport. Mother and son were exhausted from the ten hour flight and the journey from Voronezh to the Moscow airport, but have now settled in comfortably at Ronald McDonald House of Long Island. Their first appointment at CHOP is on Thursday.
