Yesterday was Moebius syndrome Day. My friend Kathleen R. Bogart is doing research on Moebius syndrome as she works on her doctorate at Tufts University in Boston.
Kathy has Moebius syndrome and is a pioneer in promoting awareness and research on this syndrome. People with Moebius syndrome have difficulty communicating facial expressions to others due to their inability to smile and use some facial muscles.
