Jono Lancaster was born with an extremely rare genetic disorder, Treacher Collins Syndrome. This disorder causes disfigurements of the face along with several other difficulties. He faced a great deal of rejection and hardships all his life. He chose to rise above it, though, and now is a huge inspiration and hope for so many children that are dealing with the same disorder. Lancaster said that as he's gotten older, he realized that God made him this way for a reason and he is thankful to be made this way.
