Smile Stories

When we think of children we usually envision happy, active kids running around without a care in the world. However for children with congenital heart disease they are often sickly and a bit of activity could tire them out. Some live sedentary lives not because they want to but because they need to. Many of them have uncertain futures and live each day at a time.

When we have the chance to help improve these children’s lives, every single smile we receive is priceless. Here are their stories and how Nu Skin distributors have helped create smiles.

Name   :   Ziqri
Age      :   10 years old

Friendly Ziqri was smaller in stature compared to most boys aged 10. He was not growing as well as others and his weak physique meant he had to face numerous challenges growing up. It was then discovered he suffered from Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA), a condition which affects normal heart functions. 

Ziqri received help from Nu Skin SEA CHF and underwent treatment in 2013. Being an enthusiastic boy who wants to help others like him with similar health issues, he agreed to be filmed for Nu Skin Indonesia’s Convention, just a week after his surgery. With a new lease of life, he can now focus on his studies and spend quality time with his siblings and friends.
