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   :   Tin Zar Wai
Age      :   5 years old

As a toddler, Tin’s mother noticed she was breathing abnormally and there were other signs indicating that not all was right. After several medical examinations, it was determined that Tin had a heart condition. It limited her daily activities and her weak immune system prevented her from venturing outdoors which also meant that she could not attend school.

It was crucial for her to undergo surgery but with a monthly income of only SGD189.40 (USD150), her family could ill afford such high expenses. With help provided by Nu Skin SEA CHF - KKH, Tin underwent successful surgery and her parents are thankful and excited for her to experience a normal healthy lifestyle now.
