Bullied Teen With Rare Syndrome Sees Car Pull Up, Walks Outside And Gasps At Visitor’s Appearance
Being isolated, outcast and bullied just for the way you look is a sad reality for many students, but those with conditions that affect their facial features are particularly easy targets.
15 year old Austin lives with Goldenhar syndrome, a rare congenital defect that causes malformation of the child’s face. Understandably, school hasn’t been easy on Austin, but today he has every right to be excited as he’s about to meet someone special, someone who, unlike his classmates, understands exactly what he’s going through every single day.
Finally Austin is able to just hang out with someone, no staring, no rudeness, just friendship.
