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   :   Chanida Limpanaporn
Age      :   12 years old

With a  smooth and normal pregnancy, no one expected Chanida to be any different when she was born. However, as a baby, her skin had a bluish tint and she had to be placed in an incubator to regulate oxygen flow. There was minimal improvement and doctors suspected that she may have a heart problem. It was later discovered that Chanida had a transposition of the great arteries and needed intensive care but was too young to undergo surgery.

Due to the high medical costs, Chanida’s condition became a constant cause of worry for her parents. It was only when she reached 10 months old that she received help from Nu Skin SEA CHF – PCSF.  Chanida underwent successful surgery and was given a new lease of life. A well-rounded student today, she can now confidently work towards her ambition to become a mathematics teacher.
