Welcome to the Facial Paralysis and Bell’s Palsy Foundation


The Facial Paralysis & Bell’s Palsy Foundation was founded in 2009, with the goal to provide support, encouragement, and resources to individuals and families dealing with facial paralysis and Bell’s Palsy.

We are also dedicated to raising awareness of facial paralysis concerns within the medical community, and in society at large.

We are accomplishing this through:


  • We sponsor support group meetings where persons with facial paralysis can gather for networking and encouragement.
