Eleven-year-old Anastasia Dolmatova underwent surgery on March 2nd at Saint Francis Hospital. Dr. Sean Levchuck performed the life-saving procedure. He emerged from the operating room to the visitor's lounge and told Anastasia’s mother, Vera, that everything had gone well and that the hole in Anastasia's heart has been closed once and for all.
Anastasia was kept overnight for observation and discharged the following day. Special thanks to Alex Kwartiroff and Mark Dana of the Brooklyn Bridge Rotary for volunteering at the hospital. Anastasia's family is very grateful for all the support and are relieved that their daughter is now able to live a healthy life.
