Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Polina.
Polina was born with heart disease just a few weeks before the Novick Cardiac Alliance medical team arrived in Voronezh, Russia. Baby Polina was operated by the local team a week prior to the arrival of the NCA team. She was still on the ventilator in the Intensive Care Unit. Fortunately, she progressed and three days into the surgical training mission was bundled up and ready for discharge to the neonatal hospital next door.
The Gift of Life, Inc. and Russian Gift of Life USA are helping to fund medical training missions to Voronezh, where Polina was operated. The first mission took place in November 2013.
Polina was successfully operated on October 7, 2016.
