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.

Diah was diagnosed to be suffering from Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) after she was frequently sick with cough and flu. When this kindergarten kid was catheterized on 2 September 2010 with the support from SEACHF, it was found out that her heart needed further surgery. Diah then had corrective heart surgery on 1 November 2010 and is now a happy and healthy child.
