This is the Face of Ukraine
Davyd and his family currently live in Ukraine. Last year, Davyd was implanted with the Avery diaphragm pacemaker. He now has the ability to breathe on his own and is only dependent on a ventilator for one hour a day. His family says they are hoping he will have his tracheostomy removed by the spring of 2022.
From all of us at Avery Biomedical, we stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and the innocent people of Russia.
“Thank you so much guys, for your help and support! Thanks to you, David is having a relatively normal childhood and not hooked up to the vent machine all the time.” -Davyd’s Nurse
