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.

Ann is the youngest child of the 2 children of Mr. WijaiWitton and Mrs. NichaPanapitak who are Karen. They are rice farmers and general laborers in the remote area far from prosperity. In January 2015, when Ann was 4 years old, she was sick very often and got tired very easily. Her heart beat so fast that it caused a chest pain. The doctor found that her heartbeat was abnormal and suspected that she might have a heart disease. Ann has received generous help from the Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Foundation in facilitating the congenital heart surgery. After the surgery, Ann has well recovered and she no longer gets tired so easily.Her father is so pleased that his daughter received the surgery and survived the deadly disease.On this occasion, the family would like to express their gratitude to the Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Foundation and all donors for financially supporting the surgery.
