We are so excited to support Australia's inaugural Facial Paralysis Awareness Day! It is a day ahead here in Sydney, and we are getting ready for our event in just a few hours!

Our traveling makeup bag from Beauty with Paralysis has been out sightseeing, and will later be given as a door prize to one lucky attendee at the event.

We hope that you will join with Australia in spirit today, as many persons with facial paralysis will be meeting for the first time. We will share photos with you soon!

Today we would like to highlight the ongoing research that is underway to identify the causes of congenital facial paralysis, which is a facial weakness that is present at birth.

Dr. Bryn Webb, from the Icahn Shcool of Medicine at Mount Sinai, is continuing her project to identify genetic (DNA) changes that can lead to this condition.

She is still in need of participants for her study, and is seeking to enroll persons who were born with facial paralysis, and even those who may have other family members with this condition.

If you are interested in learning more, then please reach out to Dr. Webb directly at: bryn.webb@mssm.edu, or by phone at 212-241-1481.

We are pleased to support Dr. Webb in this important project, so if you were born with facial paralysis, please consider participating in this study!
