PHOENIX -- Arizona Congressman Trent Franks welcomed an American "dynasty" to the Capitol Tuesday.

Jase, Missy and Mia Robertson, famous for starring on the A&E reality show "Duck Dynasty," met with Franks to discuss the Mia Moo Fund, inspired by daughter Mia.

Mia was born with a cleft lip and palate, which required intensive surgeries as a young child. The Mia Moo Fund is a nonprofit "dedicated to raising awareness and funds towards research into the causes of and treatments for cleft lip and palate," according to a press release.

The Mia Moo Fund is special to Franks, as he was born with a cleft lip and palate so severe, his parents were warned that he may not live for very long. He "eventually underwent nine operations, the first at just 2 weeks old."
