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: Megan Gregorio
Age: 1 month old

Megan was diagnosed upon birth to have the congenital heart disease called tricuspid and pulmonary valve atresia. Her parents had barely enough money to pay for their baby’s delivery let alone pay for Megan’s much-needed surgery.

Through SEA CHF and CHILD, Megan underwent the procedure called cardiac catheterization on December 9, 2013.

Now Megan’s parents can look forward to their child leading a normal life, no longer restricted by such a life-threatening disease.
