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:  Haikal Amirulshah Bin Shahryal
Age   :  6 years old

Haikal, being the youngest in his family often smiles a lot and his friends and family enjoy his talkative nature. However, even simple joys like these, became tiring for this 6-year-old child. His heart condition drained his energy and physical activities as he was growing up.

His 66-year-old father works as a clinical helper and only brings home RM1200 (USD373) a month. Fortunately, with the help of Nu Skin SEA CHF – IJN Foundation Heart Surgery Project, little Haikal received the necessary treatment and is getting stronger by the day.
