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 Kyae Khin
Age      :   2 years old

When she was 10 days old, Yin’s skin had a slightly bluish tint but her mother thought nothing of it, hoping it would clear up in time. But when her whole body turned blue at 6 months of age, her mother knew something was amiss. After medical consultations, it was confirmed that Yin had a hole in her heart which could lead to abnormal heart functions and various health problems.

Although saddened and worried, her parents were also financially strapped. Her father earned SGD189.40 (USD150) a month as a taxi driver, faced a dilemma regarding the high medical costs. Ultimately, Yin underwent successful treatment thanks to Nu Skin SEA CHF and KKH and is now enjoying her time playing around with her elder sister, experiencing a normal and healthy childhood.
