Nikita Gerasimov, one and half years old, suffers from complex congenital heart disease, needs open heart surgery at the Asklepios Hospital (Sankt Augustin, Germany), <nobr>31,635.00 GBP</nobr>

Funds raised through Rusfond's readers

I learned about Nikita’s terrifying diagnosis when I was pregnant.  Doctors said he would need three or four operations in the future. But the main thing for us was to save our son’s life and health. Nikita’s first operation was performed at one of the Russian federal cardiac centers. Thanks to that first surgery, our boy lived and began to grow. Unofficially, we were told that it would be better to continue treatment of such a complex heart defect in Germany, so we sent our son’s medical records to the Asklepios Hospital in Sankt Augustin, Germany. We raised funds with the help of caring people and, in March of last year, Nikita had his second operation. Now he faces the most important, final stage of surgery. But we cannot afford the hospital’s new invoice. I spend all my time with Nikita, my husband works assembling furniture and our income is small. Please help Nikita, he is a very cheerful and sociable boy who loves outdoor games. Without continued medical care, he soon won’t be able to run or even walk.  Alina Gerasimova, Moscow region.

£31,635 is needed to save Nikita Gerasimov.

Asklepios Hospital cardiac surgeon Victor Hrashka (Sankt Augustin, Germany): "Nikita has complex congenital heart disease. A year ago, the boy had his first stage of surgical treatment at our hospital. Thanks to this operation, he began to develop. Now he is ready for the second phase. Hopefully, Nikita’s condition will improve dramatically".
