11-October-2017. A student brought this to my attention. “Dear Tala Z, Thank you for sharing this heart breaking story. By reading this article, I learned about Treacher Collins syndrome, bullying and parental love. I will be putting pen to paper and sending Jackson a card.”

- “My heart is in pieces right now and my soul feels like its ripping from my chest and this beautiful young man my son Jackson has to endure a constant barrage of derogatory comments and ignorance like Ive never witnessed. He is called ugly and freak and monster on a daily basis by his peers at school. He talks about suicide and he’s not quite 8!
He says he has no friends and everyone hates him. Kids throw rocks at him and push him shouting these horrific words and please please take a minute and imagine if this were your child. Take a minute to educate your children about special needs. Talk to them about compassion and love for our fellow man. His condition is called Treacher Collins. Maybe even look it up. Hes endured horrific surgery and has several more in the coming years. Anyway & I could go on … but please educate your children.
Please share this. This shouldn’t be happening and to anyone.” – Dan Bezzant (father)
