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   :   Kyi Sin Shn Thant
Age      :   10 years old

It is a parent’s worst nightmare when a medical misdiagnosis happens and in the suburbs of countries like Myanmar where substandard medical practices are unfortunately common. In Sin Shn’s case, after the family observed frequent coughs and breathlessness, she was brought to the family doctor where she was diagnosed with chest infections twice and antibiotics were given, yet the coughs didn’t go away. At their third visit to another doctor, it was immediately recognized that Sin Shn may be suffering from a heart disease and was advised to approach the hospital. With a monthly average household income of $145.11 USD to support the family of five, it was almost impossible for Sin Shn to receive medical care. Luckily, with KKH-Nu Skin SEACHF, Sin Shn was able to receive professional treatment in Singapore for her heart condition and her dream to become an artist is now possible.
