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   :   Siti Nor Khadijah Binti Azni
Age      :   9 years old

9-year-old Siti hopes to be a doctor when she grows up and it is not without reason. Coming from a family of 7 children, she was stricken with heart disease and her daily life was far from the norm. Limited to small activities with each breath a laboured chore, she was desperate to live life normally and not to burden her parents with expensive medical treatments.

Fortunately, Nu Skin SEA CHF - IJN Foundation came to her rescue and she received a successful heart surgery in May 2011. She is now able to enjoy a normal lifestyle and is one of the top students, with a step closer in achieving her dreams.
