Man Abandoned By Parents For Being Ugly Is Inspiring Millions With His Courage.

It's hard to imagine any parent abandoning their child for any particular reason, but unfortunately, that's what Jono Lancaster's parents did to him shortly after he was born. Their reason was simply because their son had a condition that made him too ugly in their eyes. Clearly they needed to have their eyes checked as they're the ones with an attitude that was truly ugly. Now it's tough enough being a regular kid in today's world, but having your parents turn their backs on you can be devastating. But despite this, Jono has found a way to overcome the emotional scars of his childhood, so he could help others living with his condition lead a happy life.

Jono has been living with Treacher Collins Syndrome for over 30 years.

Unfortunately, he was born with this condition which caused him to go through life with facial deformities. But that certainly hasn't stopped him from living life to the fullest and in the process, help others to accept their differences too.

After all, unlike other children, Jono was born without certain facial bones, which caused a great deal of deformation in his appearance. It also caused him to suffer from certain hearing impairment.

Despite this, he found a way to stay positive throughout his childhood and into adulthood.

But obviously that wasn't easy. What was even worse was the fact that his parents had abandoned him 36 hours after he was born. Their only excuse for such a vile act is that they didn't like the way that he looked.

But Jono's not crying over the proverbial spilled milk because he considers himself lucky in many ways.

Especially since, unlike him, most people suffering from Treacher Collins require as many as 80 separate surgeries throughout their lifetimes just to have a semi-normal existence free of discomfort.
