A Full Heart
March 04, 2016
Meet Chong Ly Ann, a beautiful 8-month-old girl from Sungai Buloh, Selangor. She was born with a large hole in her heart, extending from the upper chambers to the lower pumping chambers resulting in significant health problems. Doctors said she required major surgery in order to save Ly Ann's life but her parents couldn’t afford the surgery.
After trying everything to raise money for the surgery and save their daughter, Nu Skin Southeast Asia Children’s Heart Fund became aware of the Chong’s family’s story and provided the means to get Ly Ann the surgery. She underwent the PDA ligation to tie off the extra vessel in her heart and was discharged the next day. She’s now at home with mom and dad making a full recovery. ■
