It is difficult to imagine what trials this young man had to go through. In his life he faced lies and misunderstanding. But, in spite of everything, he became an example for millions of people.
Just 36 hours after his birth, Lancaster Jono was left an orphan with living parents.
Seeing what pathologies the baby was born with, they abandoned him.
Jono was much more fortunate than other people with such features. He has had several surgeries which slightly improved his appearance.
Lancaster was able to forgive his parents for their betrayal.
He was adopted by Jean, who surrounded the baby with love and care. But peers did not want to be friends with the child, constantly humiliating him.
Jono did not understand the reason for their actions and his guilt. Mom, seeing the boy’s experiences, often cried from injustice.
After graduating from school, the guy got a job as a bartender. But after a few months, he left.
Then there was a study at the Faculty of Physical Education, which he graduated with a diploma with honors. While working at a local fitness club, he met his love.
At first, the girl was ashamed by the unusual appearance of the boyfriend. And then, when she managed to discern in him a man with a golden heart and a sincere soul, she became his wife.
Lancaster devotes a lot of energy and time to classes with people who have the same issues.
With his positive attitude to life, he sets an example for millions of people with a non-standard appearance.
Jono says not to give up in difficult situations. He is the creator of a charitable foundation for children with Treacher-Collins syndrome.
Together with his family, he travels the world, provides psychological support to children with this syndrome. He often visits ordinary schools, holding seminars on how to be more tolerant of peers.
Jono says: “It’s a pity that in my childhood there was no person with the same problem as me.”
It is important for children to hear the words: “You can achieve a lot and become happy,” this is a huge support.
Looking at this bright and strong-willed man, people understand that appearance is not the main thing. Life is interesting and multifaceted, there is a place for everyone in it.
