Jono Lancaster, a 30-year-old with Treacher Collins syndrome, flew all the way from London to Australia to meet a little boy with the same rare condition.
Treacher Collins syndrome affects 1 in 50,000 people and alters the development of the bones and tissues in the face. Lancaster has been dedicated to inspiring children with the genetic disorder to ensure they live the happiest, healthiest life they can.
Jono made the trip after the boy's mom contacted him through Facebook because of all the good work he had done.
She said: "Jono is a celebrity to us — he’s a huge inspiration. When he said he was coming to Australia, we knew we had to meet him and it’s made us so happy to see Zack meet someone like him."
"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’,” he told a local newspaper.
Jono also is a patron for the charity Life For A Kid, which helps children who require life saving or life changing operations. After meeting Zack, the 30-year-old travelled around Australia meeting other children with the rare disease.
In his spare time, he works as a part-time model, and has shared photos of his work on his Twitter page.
