Rumble / Heartwarming FamiliesA dad who has no cheekbones due to a rare genetic disorder hopes to be a role model for his two-year-old daughter - after she inherited the same condition.

Duane Zingale, 33, was born with no ears and undeveloped facial bones due to Treacher Collins Syndrome (CTS), which affects one in 50,000 children.

The marketing consultant decided to start a family with his wife Becky, 32, despite there being a 50 per cent chance he would pass it on.
