ROSLYN, New York, December 20, 2013 – Until now, 5-year old Viktoria Orekhova and 6-year-old Maria Zharkova couldn’t enjoy playing like most children their ages. Both were born with a congenital condition that caused them to tire easily because of holes in their hearts. But thanks to a minimally invasive procedure they received at St. Francis Hospital to mend their broken hearts, the two girls from Russia will be celebrating their best Christmas ever.
