Five-Year-Old Anton Has A Heart Defect. Heart Surgery Can Save His Life. Please Help.
"I am writing in hopes that you do not leave us in this time of trouble. When Anton was three months old he was faced with a terrible diagnosis. They scheduled us for medical treatment in 2012, and then only with statement - if he lives that long. In all hospitals they said that with such heart defects it's better the child not live. In Kazakhstan, he cannot be saved. In the summer of 2008 we met cardiac surgeons from Tomsk and with your charity fund. Your readers and the Russian Gift of Life, USa helped us and paid for the two most difficult operations in Tomsk. And both were successful. Health and happiness to you and your children, my dear ones! May all troubles pass you by! Anton is stronger, has gained weight, he grows and develops. He reads, breaking words into syllables, draws, runs and jumps. He can make it to the fourth floor without stopping. And most of all the playground beckons to him: Anton is fascinated looking at the healthy young kids exercising. But now he needs one final operation. Please help us again! Thank you, good people!"

Anton was successfully operated at the Tomsk Cardiac Center in Siberia on July 13, 2011.
