Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Alex.
Alex was born with heart disease.
Alex, four years old, had his operation during the second medical mission to Nizhny Novgorod. He has a defect called atrioventricular canal, which affects two of the valves in the middle of the heart.
Luckily Alex’s defect was found to be of mild severity. Once his operation was done, he was off the breathing machine very quickly. Alex is a precocious little boy and likes to stick his tongue out playfully at medical staff.
Alex is seen here a few days after surgery.
Russian Gift of Life USA is helping to fund medical training missions to Nizhny Novgorod, where Alex was operated. The second mission took place in June 2015.
