Kara James was born with Moebius and Poland Syndrome, but at 13 Kara was fortunate to undergo the life changing surgery to show her beautiful smile. Kara is passionate about not only helping raise awareness, but to help support others with a life changing smile. Kara created the Kara Smiles Fund to help offset medical expenses for those needing the "Smile Surgery" with primary persons suffering from facial paralysis, including but not limited to Moebius Syndrome, cleft lip, Bell's palsy. Grant distributions from this Fund are made to qualified medical facilities assisting with qualified medical expenses. To be considered for assistance, please submit a letter of inquiry to the Foundation. To learn more about Kara's story click here.
