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:   Kaung Sat Naing
Age:    2 years 6 months

Kaung was diagnosed with heart condition when he was 3 days old. Due to his heart condition Kaung’s complexion is slightly blue and his growth and development tends to be slower as compared to a healthy child. A year ago Kaung was still a 'blue baby' until he was brought to KKH through SEA CHF. But due to his complex cardiac condition, Kaung was not able to recover entirely after one surgery. So in 2014, Kaung was  brought back to perform the final surgery required. After the surgery Kaung is in the pink of health and can always be seen with a smile on his face. His mother is very grateful to SEA CHF for giving her child the opportunity to experience a normal childhood.
