Hello everyone,
In September, we have helped to pay for treatment and related expenses to Anna Abramova, 8 y. o., heart defect, and Ivan Ibragimov, 12 y. o., myelodysplastic syndrome. Here is a letter from Anya’s mother about their success.
Anna just underwent an endovascular surgery, whereby a complete examination of the heart and blood vessels was performed. The necessary manipulations have been done to dilate her blood vessels and eliminate stenosis.
As usual, Anna’s operation has lasted for about 4 hours. Now her condition has already stabilized. The blood oxygen saturation is above 83%. She has to come in 10 days for a check on an outpatient basis.
We thank your organization for your help and support, we really appreciate that in the difficult period for our family you gave a helping hand to us!
May Lord God protect you!
Respectfully yours, Svetlana
