Well, I'm going to talk about this film because I like to explain you about this syndrome called “Treacher Collins” has an International day, more specifically 28 May. I'm sure that you have never heard this syndrome because It is not famous as Down Syndrome or Asperger Syndrome but I would like to talk about this.
First of all, you should know that Treacher Collins Syndrome is a cranioencephalic malformation and incurable that affect two of 100,000 births. It is caused by a genetic mutation of Chromosome 5 that it is the responsible of build our face. And it’s important to add that it’s affect as men as woman for equal. People that suffer this symptom births without one or both ears, sunken cheekbones, mandible doesn’t grow, they have narrow pharynx and in many occasions with opened palate. Moreover, they can present ocular, additive, digestive or respiratory troubles.
They have enough troubles during their life and we have to do a reflection. We must help them to integrate and developed their social skills and avoid prejudice for their appearance because they have the same capacity as you to work, doing sport, going supermarket, having a beer whatever they want. And like the film with the support of the family and friends they can leave of their own bubble and find out more beyond of fearing and frustration to be physically different.
