Providing loving, nurturing Christ-centered homes for orphaned children

Maxim’s Surgery, Thank You Riverside!


Maxim CroppedA BIG thank you to Riverside Medical Center, President and CEO Bill Downey and neurosurgeon Dr. William McAllister for providing 16-year-old Maxim with a new lease on life. Maxim, an orphan teen from Ukraine travelled to the U.S. in October to receive life-changing surgery through the help of Heart for Orphans. Dr. McAllister repaired Maxim’s skull, which had been fractured in two places when he was a toddler, by covering portions that had grown apart with mesh netting. The surgery was performed in Newport News at no cost.

Our heartfelt appreciation goes to everyone involved with this surgery – from the hospital for making it happen, to the doctor’s, nurses and entire staff for providing Maxim with kind and excellent care!

Maxim arrived in Ukraine November 10th with a fresh start that will include playing soccer! Thank you!!
