#1 Born Without Some Face Bones
Due to Treacher Collins Syndrome, Jono was born without some face bones and impaired hearing.
#2 70 Separate Surgeries
He says he's lucky, as many people with Treacher Collins need up to seventy separate surgeries to make their lives tolerable.
#3 His Parents
Jono's parents decided they couldn't deal with his rare condition and they leave him with social services. Later a woman named Jean Lancaster adopted him.
#4 He was not normal
In school, Jono learned that he wasn't normal. His classmates ran away, yelling that they'd catch his disease.
In the beginning, Jono hated his appearance, but he grows as a confidant person who faces his problems.
