Jono Lancaster, suffers so much bullying as a child because of his looks

Everyone like to enjoy the life with parents and friends, we don't want to feel alone and we are looking for a role model to follow their path of success, but the life of Jono Lancaster was entirely different, here was born with a rare genetic condition Treacher Collins Syndrome a disorder of facial bones and tissue that can dramatically affect appearance, hearing, sight and breathing it usually doesn't affect intelligence and many patients can live long with treatments, but there is no cure, "Its been  a reality for me all my life, but I'm not alone about half a million people in the UK of some facial disfigurement."

Lancaster 30 was abandoned by his parents at just 36 hours old, he always felt alone growing up with the condition he spent most of his developing years depressed and acting out, he faced cruel bullying and rejections, Jono has discovered on Facebook that he has two younger siblings who had no idea he exists, but his attempt to contact his parents only resulted in more rejection.

Jono says "Due to my condition and the way I look, I can stand out from the crowd and there's been times that have been an easy target for bullies, that's left me feeling isolated"

Now, Jono Lancaster is an inspiration to children having the same condition, he travels the world meeting children with disorder, helping families cope with it and speaking to groups about awareness, education in bullying prevention, John also  is developing a brace of offense like young Zachary in Australia who loved him as a hero, two-year-old Zachary Walton born with Treacher Collins Syndrome got the opportunity to spend three days with his hero, the family witnessed a wonderful bond between Zachary and Lancaster, they were very much worried about their son's future, but Lancaster gave them hope and inspiration.

Now, Lancaster is a part of Zac family, he hated Treacher Collins, he hated his life, but now he believes God made him for a good reason and he is proud of it.

Lancaster is an important role model to anyone, anywhere upset about how they look and his speeches help change peoples' attitudes to love themselves for who they are.
