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   :   Lin Khant Aung
Age      :   3 years old

At 20 days old, Lin was already diagnosed with congenital heart disease. As he grew older, he could not play as much as his friends. He tired easily and had to squat down every few minutes to catch his breath. Without preventive surgery, his life expectancy was only estimated to last till 20 years of age.

However, with a monthly family income of SGD96.91 (USD120), surgery was unaffordable and this was a constant source of worry and concern. With the help of Nu Skin SEA CHF and KKH, Lin was able to undergo surgery successfully. He could finally play as long as he wished, without feeling tired and is now  an active child who enjoys playing with his friends.
