Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Daria.
Daria was born with heart disease.
Daria is a precious baby girl who had surgery on her heart at just eleven days old. Her diagnosis was an arterial switch which calls for a complex operation. Her surgery was performed by local surgeons Dr. Orlov and Dr. Shirokov.
The next day she needed a reoperation and it was also performed by the local surgeons. Even with the reoperation, she recovered incredibly and was discharged from the ICU just four days after her initial surgery. Our team loved holding this beautiful baby girl and we were happy to see her heart healed. We feel great knowing she can grow up without her heart defect getting in the way.
The Gift of Life, Inc. and Russian Gift of Life USA are helping to fund medical training missions to Nizhny, where Daria was operated. The first mission took place in November 2014.
Daria was successfully operated on September 26th and 27th, 2016.
