Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Dasha.
Dasha was born with heart disease.
(Dasha) is a 7 month old baby who had a complex defect called transposition, and double outlet ventricle - additionally one side of her heart was too small. She will require repeated follow op by the NCA team. On this occasion, she had a temporary operation (a palliative procedure) called Pulmonary Artery banding.
If able to raise sufficient funds, we will be able to return at the optimal time for her subsequent surgery or surgeries - the exact nature of which are at this time undecided and will need further team consultation.
Gift of Life, Inc. and Russian Gift of Life USA are helping to fund medical training missions to Voronezh, where Dasha was operated. The first mission took place in November 2013.
