Duck Dynasty’s Mia Robertson is slowly recovering after she underwent another surgery on Friday, March 27, to repair her cleft palate and lip.
Mia’s mom, Missy Robertson, wrote on her Facebook page: “Mia’s recovery has been slow and painful, but today has been a good day. Cousin Bella brought her a snow cone and that seemed to do the trick. Thank you for your continued prayers and support. She still has a tough road ahead, but we can see a glimpse of light that has been hiding for the past 5 days. She is definitely a brave kid!

This is a video of her hospital room. Each paper doll was made by a child from either our WFR church or our OCS school family and have a scripture or a message telling Mia to “Be Brave and Keep Going”. Over 500! What a blessing to this mom to know so many kids (and adults) love and are praying for my child!
Thank you all!”

The Mia Moo Fund website explained: “The organization began in 2014 after Mia Robertson, daughter of Jase and Missy Robertson, completed surgery for her cleft lip / palate. As Mia entered surgery, thousands of supportive fans tweeted, blogged and talked about how strong and beautiful she was. It was both empowering and inspiring. It has since become our mission to bring this type of support and love to each and every child that suffers from cleft lip and palate. These children face difficulties that are hard to comprehend, but with your support, the impossible can be achieved.”
Mia Robertson’s mother, Missy, has announced on her Faccebook page: „I am happy, excited, humbled and proud to introduce you to the Mia Moo Fund! Our family wants to help as many kids as possible who have been affected by cleft lip/palate. Follow us and become a part. And check out our web page for so much more at www.miamoo.org. Together, we can give these kids a bright future. In the words of Mia, <<Let’s do this!>>.”
Duck Dynasty stars Jase and Missy Robertson have three kids: Reed, Cole, and Mia.
The little one is Mia Robertson. Ten-year-old Mia hasn’t been on the show at all, except sitting around Miss Kay’s table for the family blessing that ends each episode.

Mia Robertson had a cleft lip (cheiloschisis) and cleft palate (palatoschisis) condition and she had an operation for it.
Reed Robertson is Jase and Missy’s eldest son. He is a senior in high school, playing football, and hanging out with his girlfriend.
Cole Robertson is Jase and Missy’s second child. He has been on the show quite a bit. He is 15, now, and looks so much like Willie’s boy, John Luke, that seeing the two cousins together on camera is always fun. You’ll find him playing video games with John Luke on one episode and, in the same episode, getting a lesson from Granddad Phil on how not to be a “yuppie.”
