What is Moebius Syndrome?
Moebius Syndrome is an extremely rare congenital neurological disorder which is characterized by facial paralysis and the inability tomove the eyes from side to side. Most people with Moebius syndrome are born withfacial paralysis, which means they cannot close their eyes or form facial expressions. Limb and chest wall abnormalities sometimes occur with the syndrome. Most people with Moebius syndrome have normal intelligence, and others should take care not to confuse their lack of facial expression with dullness or unfriendliness. It is named for Paul Jullius Mobius, a neurologist who first described the syndrome in 1888.
Each time we get a new "Like" on Facebook we are spreading awareness about moebius syndrome one step further. When we spread awareness we become better known. As we become better known people start to see us for our commonalities not our differences. More doors are opened for us and we are able to do more towards our mission goal of "Creating a better tomorrow for ourselves and our children through education and public awareness!" We have to keep going and growing. To do this we set our goals a little higher each year. This year our goal is 5000 likes to our Facebook page by MSAD on January 24 2014.
