Marian, 3rd child in the family.
His family is very well known to our foundation.
The first child in the family was born in 2009 and unsuccessfully operated in Moldova.

The second child was born with a congenital heart disease, but immediately after the birth was sent by Marcela Soitu to Kiev. The child was successfully operated on a double digression of the main vessels from the right ventricle. At the moment the child is healthy and goes to school.

The third child appeared in this family in 2018. Even before birth, the diagnosis was rectified: a double retreat of the magistral vessels from the right ventricle. The child was born in Kiev, but after the birth it was decided that Marian does not need an operation in the first 2 months of life. During the examination of the child in 2 months of life, Marcela noted an extremely low saturation of blood oxygen and the child was immediately transported to Kiev. The transportation of the child complicated his condition and the child had to be in the heart of cardiosurgery for more than 14 days before the operation. The operation was conducted by Mr. Emets. However, the child had an AV block after surgery,  that was resistant to medicines. It was recommended to install a pacemaker. This fact dramatically increased the cost of surgery and extended the time of the child's stay in the department. The total cost of treatment was 20,000 euros.
This amount was  jointly paid by Baby's Heart Foundation, Gertz Foundation and Save Life foundation.
