Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Ksenia.
Ksenia was born with heart disease.
Ksenia is a beautiful thirteen-year-old diagnosed with a Ventricular Septal Defect. Her operation was performed by local surgeon Dr. Shirokov and assisted by Dr. Chistiakov. Her surgery went very smoothly! She was taken off of the ventilator just two hours after surgery and had no complications afterward. She was discharged from the ICU on Tuesday to recover with her family. Ksenia is entering her teenage years and will be able to hang out with her friends with no issues from her heart. We loved her positive spirit and beautiful smile.
The Gift of Life, Inc. and Russian Gift of Life USA are helping to fund medical training missions to Nizhny, where Ksenia was operated. The first mission took place in November 2014.
Ksenia was successfully operated on September 30, 2016.
