The family and friends of Preston Tassi are raising money to help pay for a 'smile surgery' for Preston who was born with Moebius Syndrome.

Our son Preston was born (5/18/12) with Moebius Syndrome. Moebius is a neurological disorder affecting the 6th and 7th cranial nerves. These nerves control eye movement and facial movement. So basically it is a full facial paralysis, he is unable to blink and show any type of expression (smiling). The surgery will be performed around the age of 5 years old. This will help with not only facial expression but also in eating, drinking, (and possibly speech). He is a beautiful and an awesome little boy who lights up any room and melts the hearts of most that meet him! I hope with our story we can help raise awareness of this very rare disease (he is really one in a million - in more ways than one).
