My brother was born with a birth defect which is when he smiles only one side of his face moves while the other side does not. He went to Germany two years ago and he had an operation but unfortunately they discovered that he does not have the required nerve to move his face normally. They suggested that they take a nerve from one of his legs and plant it in his face but doing that means that he will be lame in one leg. Of course he did not approve on that. He is now 28 years old and still did not find a solution for his problem.Please help him I really love my brother.
