We live in an incredibly vain world, and many times it can be really cruel to him or her that doesn’t look like everybody else. And I think we can all agree that this is wrong, however, it still happens every single day, one way or another. Jono Lancaster knows this better than anyone else.
Jono is suffering from Treacher Collins syndrome, a syndrome characterized by craniofacial deformities. He was just a few hours old when his parents abandoned him because of how he looked.
During his childhood years he was bullied most of the time, but Jono refused to give up.
Today, he is 30 years old. He is focused on being positive and to use his experience to make good things.
He travels around the world to inform people about what its like to live with Treacher Collins syndrome. He meet up with kids who is also suffering from the syndrome, and he talks with their parents and their family.
