James O’Neal from Redmond, Washington suffers from the rare genetic condition neurofibromatosis
which leaves him horribly disfigured.
O’Neal, who compares himself to the legendary Elephant Man doesn’t let his condition hold him back. He has worked for a leading American supermarket chain, and become a popular member of staff with customers and colleagues.
Now one regular shopper has started a campaign to raise funds for James so he can have life altering reconstructive surgery to save his face.
