“Duck Dynasty” star Missy Robertson is passionate about helping those in need. From assisting women coming out of trafficking and prison to helping children and families in need, Robertson and her family have devoted much of their time to charity — a topic that the TV star recently discussed in detail during an interview with “The Billy Hallowell Podcast.”
Robertson explained the powerful work she and her husband, Jase, are doing through their charity, the Mia Moo Fund, an organization they founded in 2014 to “assure that each and every child has a warm and bright smile.”
The Robertsons’ daughter Mia, 15, was born with a cleft lip and palate, and now they are trying to assist other families who face the same journey. The goal is to help these mothers and fathers navigate the complexities and pitfalls that often accompany these complex birth defects.
Listen to Robertson share her journey below:
“When I was diagnosed at 31 weeks gestation, we did not know what this would entail,” Robertson explained, noting that awareness sometimes isn’t prevalent. “It’s not really a fixable condition, but it’s a manageable condition.”
Clarifying that “cleft” means “a hole” or slit in the upper lip or roof of the mouth, she noted that every child is different, and that each family faces a unique battle. Through the Mia Moo Fund, she’s hoping to help families navigate the uncertainty and cost that comes with the condition.
“One of the functions of the Mia Moo Fund is to spread awareness of the cleft lip and palate journey,” she said. “The other one is to help with medical funds for the parents and the families living right here in America.”
