RUSSIAN CHILDREN ARE DYING AT UNPRECEDENTED RATES...
Children who desperately need your help today.
Critical congenital heart defects, just one of many rare diseases, kills at least 12 of these forgotten children every day.
That’s 4,385 children dying unnecessarily every year.
That's like the Titanic sinking...
Two times... Every year.
These are children that you can help save.
What are congenital heart defects? They are problems with the structure of a child's heart present at birth.
If these children had been operated on as infants, as they are in America, they would be leading normal, healthy lives.
But they were born in another part of the world.
Their desperate parents watch as they slowly die. All the while hoping and praying for a miracle. Today you have a chance to be that miracle. To be the answer to their prayers. To fight heart disease in children.
Since no one can predict when a child with a complex heart defect requiring open-heart surgery will be born, RACF has developed a dynamic new plan to provide an on-call program.
When a child is born in Russia with a complex defect such as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, the Russian doctors will contact RACF. If the child can be supported in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit for 7-14 days...
Then an American trained team available within that window of time will fly to Russia. The team will provide or assist in pediatric 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.
Each visit to Russia by RACF's On-Call Neonatal Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Team costs between $14,363 and $33,583.
Your gift in any amount is a tax deductible donation that can help create a miracle for a newborn child.
