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   :   Preethiba A/P Srikhrishnan
Age      :   2 years old

Preethiba appeared to be a normal, healthy baby at birth and little did her parents know that this happy scenario was only short lived. She began to fall sick frequently and did not recover well. Most times, her fever would linger on and they could not understand what was happening. It was only later they discovered that their child had heart disease.

With abnormal heart functions, her parents feared for their daughter's health but with a low income, her father could not afford the high medical expenses. It was through the aid of Nu Skin SEA CHF - IJN Foundation that Preethiba was able to undergo surgery. Today, 2-year-old Preethiba is on her way to recovery.
