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:   Yin Nyein Phwe
Age:    3 years old

When Yin was 2 months old, she had difficulty breathing and her complexion turned blue when she cried. Growing up, Yin could barely walk without feeling breathless and  often cried for her mother to carry her.

After consulting a doctor, her family was  told that Yin had a heart condition  and would only have a life span of 10-15 years if she does not undergo the necessary surgery. Due to their financial situation, Yin’s family was referred to SEA CHF and received the support to undergo surgery.

Yin is now an active and playful girl like any normal child of her age.
