Meet Armando

Armando has Treacher Collins syndrome, a genetic disorder that alters the development of facial bones and tissues. Armando has endured many surgeries throughout his life, including a reconstructive jaw surgery and plastic surgery. He was also born deaf and received cochlear implants and bone-anchored hearing aids.

Armando wants other kids to know that it’s OK to be different, and he credits Children’s Colorado with providing him with the care he needs to succeed in life.
