One Emergency Visit to Russia by An On-Call Neonatal Cardiac Surgery Team
When a child is born in Russia with a complex heart defect, the Russian doctors will contact RACF. If the child can be supported in their Pediatric Intensive Care Unit for 7-14 days then an American trained surgical team available within that window of time will fly to Russia to provide or assist in open-heart surgery and in the immediate recovery period of 3-6 days. RACF's goal is to have a team available as many as 4-5 times per year for this lifesaving new program.
As a result many more children with life-threatening heart defects will receive complex open-heart surgery right where they live through the support of friends like you who have hearts of gold.
One Emergency Visit to Russia by An On-Call Neonatal Cardiac Surgery Team $14,370.
