Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Maxim.
Maxim was born with heart disease.
Maxim had surgery for a complex defect called Double Outlet Right Ventricle, a complex defect which causes intermittent blue spells , and generally requires repair as early as possible.
Maxim was on the ventilator for about 12 hours after his surgery and stayed in the ICU the rest of that week—having several serious, but treatable complications that the NCA team frequently encounter in this and other types of operations.
We were delighted to receive a picture of Maxim from Dr. Elena Korosan after we returned home - out of the ICU and looking well, if not happy yet.
Gift of Life, Inc. and Russian Gift of Life USA are helping to fund medical training missions to Voronezh, where Maxim was operated. The first mission took place in November 2013.
