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   :   Nguyen Tan Phat
Age      :   2 years old

Born with Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD), 2-year-old Phat's future seemed bleak. He was slow in development and was often sickly and could not do even the simplest of activities most children his age could. Moreover, he was from a low-income family and his parents had to beg and borrow to support the costs of his medications and frequent hospital visits.

If left untreated over the course of time, Phat could suffer Level 2 heart failure, affecting his health and development. He was in a very precarious situation and his condition was potentially life-threatening. Fortunately, with the assistance of Nu Skin SEA CHF, Phat received the necessary heart surgery.
