Executive Director Michael Yurieff met Evgeni and his mother Marina at Saint Francis Hospital for a medical evaluation. Dr. Levchuck's expert staff performed an echocardiogram to confirm the diagnosis he was given in Russia. Dr. Levchuck examined the almost seventeen year old Evgeni and confirmed plans for Evgeni's lifesaving procedure on December 6th.
Evgeni, who is almost seventeen, is a tall, athletic young man. He and his mother are excited that after so many years his heart defect will be closed for good!
