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:   Shun Lee Wai
Age:    2 years old

When Shun was 3 months old, her mother noticed that Shun’s heart beat is slightly abnormal. Furthermore, Shun's skin and lips  were becoming more bluish in color day by day. After several medical examinations, Shun was diagnosed with a heart condition. Due to her illness, Shun was not able to play for more than 10 minutes as she tends to get tired very easily. Shun’s illness has greatly affected her family as they  were afraid  of losing  her if treatment  was not received early.  They were also worried that they would not be able to afford her medication and surgery fees. Through SEA CHF, Shun had corrective heart surgery in February 2014.  Shun is  now in the pink of health and her mother also shared that Shun wants to be a model in when she grows up.
