1 in 50,000 people have Treacher-Collins syndrome. It affects in-utero facial bone and tissue development. Jono Lancaster, age 30, has it. When Jono heard about a 2 year old boy named Zackary Walton who lives in Australia and shares the condition, he flew to Australia to meet the kid.
“I would have loved to have met somebody like myself when I was younger ... somebody who had got a job, got a partner and said to me ‘these are the things you can do, you can achieve’,” Lancaster told Adelaide Now.
On November 17, Lancaster and Zackary met for the first time and Lancaster uploaded an image to his Facebook account with the caption: "Today and over the next couple of days i get to hang out with this little dude and his amazing family in beautiful Adelaide."
