Meet Austin Niehus, a 14-year-old boy who gets his kicks out of similar stuff to most people his age, basketball, football and reading.

Austin has Goldenhar syndrome, a rare genetic condition that causes a craniofacial birth defect of the face and head, usually affecting the eyes, ears, and vertebrae. Austin wasn’t supposed to live past his first birthday, but he did.

Austin has already undergone 52 corrective surgeries. Soon that will be number 53. But it’s expensive, he made this video hoping to raise $4,000 necessary for his upcoming June surgery. So far his GoFundMe page has generated over $300,000!

Austin has been bullied in the past and says “No one should be ashamed of how they look.”

Watch his touching video in full below.
