Kyiv — Ivano-Frankivsk – Lviv. For all – 7 hours on the road for heart collection and less than an hour for surgery.

The recipient is a 29-year-old man, his condition after the operation is stable.

Many thanks to the team of doctors of the Lviv Ambulance Hospital and Oleg Samchuk for fruitful cooperation. We also thank the colleagues of Ivano-Frankivsk Hospital.

Honor and gratitude to the family of a 54-year-old man who became a donor. Their difficult decision made it possible to save the lives of three Ukrainians.
