Jase and Missy Robertson of Duck Dynasty are crossing their fingers that their daughter Mia’s upcoming 14th operation will be her last. Following treatment earlier in July, the young adult is now recuperating at home and leading a normal life.
Mia has had thirteen surgeries to correct her cleft lip and palate, which she was born with. Mia established the Mia Moo Fund on her initiative to ensure that every child has the opportunity to smile at some point in their lives. The rest of the family has been open about the long and difficult road they’ve taken to get to this point.
Mia’s mother, Missy, posted a message on Instagram a few days before her surgery on July 8th, titled “People ask me, ‘How many more operations does Mia have left?’” “There is never a response other than ‘We just don’t know.
Mia’s thirteenth surgical procedure was scheduled for the spring of 2021. Her mother reports tremendous progress has been made in moving the situation forward.
“Now that she is 18, she is in charge of all conversations and completing medical forms. It’s been strange, to say the least,” Missy has been writing. “However, this is just another lesson: I can’t rely on myself and must lean on the Lord,” she explained.
