Yatsik Eva, 7 months
For 29-year-old Yana Yatsik the third pregnancy came as a surprise. The young parents of two boys were now expecting twin girls.
On January 31, 2015, Eva was born first and was a little weaker than her sister Melisa. Only on the third day did the doctor hear uncharacteristic cardiac murmur in Eva’s heart. Then things started to happen very quickly. Eva was transferred to the intensive care unit. Already in several hours she stopped breathing independently and was hooked up to a ventilator. The doctors formed a provisional diagnosis: congenital heart disease. Eva was helped out of the critical condition, but doctors could not really help her in Moldova as the necessary operation is not carried out in the country. The parents decided to go to Kyiv. In Kyiv, the doctors formed the diagnosis: Pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum. Small hypoplasia of the right ventricle and of the tricuspid valve. Moderate tricuspid insufficiency. Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO).
Eva underwent a surgery on the fifth day of her life. After the first surgery the doctors saw that there was not enough blood getting into her lungs and in eight days they had to perform another surgery on the girl.
Eva has to be operated on again when she is seven or eight months old. The Kyiv hospital has sent us a proforma invoice for 5 days in the intensive care and 5 days in the in-patient unit to the total amount of EUR 3692 (~80 200 MDL). The parents borrowed the money for the first two surgeries from their family and friends, but they cannot raise enough money for the third operation by themselves. Eva’s mother is unemployed and the money earned by her father who is a taxi driver is not enough for maintaining the family, paying off the debts and paying for the expensive operation. That is why Eva’s parents have to ask for the help of all merciful people.
Eva is already 7 months old. The surgery must be carried out within the shortest delays.
