Gift of Life Metro New York >> Success Stories

Erda Aliu, Kosovo

Erda was just 3 years old when she came here from Kosava. The amazing Doctors at Maria Fareri Hospital performed surgery to repair a large hole in her heart in December 2014. The operation has helped transform Erda from a quiet, reserved child into a young girl who is very expressive and full of energy.

Jaedan Ramkaran, Trinidad

Jaedan was 2 years old when he came to us from Trinidad. Open heart surgery was performed by the dedicated Doctors at Montefiore Children’s Hospital in August 2013. Jaedan is now 7 years old, without limitations, and is scheduled to return to the U.S. soon for a follow up.

Danna Mendoza, Ecuador

Danna was only 1 year old when she came here from Ecuador with 2 holes in her heart. She had two procedures with surgery performed in July 2017. Danna’s family recently celebrated her one year anniversary from her surgery and look forward to a lifetime of celebrating milestones and her beautiful smile.
