This is not a disease but a very rare neurological disorder which is present at birth. It primariy affects the cranial nerves and means those with the condition can't move their faces to express emotions that the rest of us take for granted - like smiling, frowning - and it affects the eyes and their lateral movement. Artoo, as we know him, has had to have a lot of help in his early life but it's clear that he is very involved in all the usual things and wants to be a palaeontologist when he grow up - and jolly good luck to him I say.

Raising awareness for all sorts of things is something I wholeheartedly agree with and I wish Laura, Artoo and all the family all the very best for the future. It was a good challenge. Thank you!
