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   :   Su Latt Pyae
Age      :   4 years old

Su was first diagnosed with a heart condition as early as 2 months old. Her mother began noticing that her breathing was irregular and she would turn bluish. A cheerful, active girl, this condition prevented her from enjoying daily activities and as she grew up, she became increasingly frustrated with her weak physique.

Su's parents realised that this was also affecting her physical development and health and her condition would only worsen with time. With a mere monthly income of SGD252.50 (USD200), they could not  afford the expensive medical costs.

It was fortunate that they managed to receive aid from Nu Skin SEA CHF and KKH.  After a successful surgery,  Su has been given a new lease of life.
