Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Petr.
Petr was born with heart disease.
Petr is a 7 month old baby born with a complex defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. His surgery was the second on the February 2016 medical mission to Voronezh. His surgery was performed by Dr. Bykov and assisted by Dr. Greznov and Dr. Novick. The operation went smoothly with no complications. Petr was breathing on his own again just three hours after his surgery.
Petr was discharged from the intensive care unit two days later, where he was very happy and playing in the pediatric ward with his family.
Gift of Life, Inc. and Russian Gift of Life USA are helping to fund medical training missions to Voronezh, where Petr was operated. The first mission took place in November 2013.
Petr was successfully operated on February 17, 2016.
