Cassi said that she was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy. This is a type of facial paralysis where one part of the facial muscles becomes weak, causing it to droop. This explained the problem with her eyes. Cassi stated that this condition is not a harm to her health, although a bit of distraction. Her husband has left no effort in taking care of her. Cassi has a very loving bond with her husband, Kerry Patton, and this makes it very clear.
