20th Anniversary Event

Apr 14, 2009 | Photo Galleries, Events

On February 14, 2009 Heart to Heart celebrated 20 years of sharing the miracle of modern heart care. Medical volunteers, donors, and other supporters came from across the U.S. and Russia to join us for the evening. Honored guests included the Russian Consul General in San Francisco, Vladimir Vinokurov, with his wife Lyubov, and Heart to Heart’s first patient, Maria Senotova, and her parents, who flew from St. Petersburg, Russia. This occasion is not only our 20th anniversary, but also marks 20 years since Maria’s heart was fully repaired in Oakland by our founders Drs. Nilas Young and Stanley Higashino.
