Bullies are no match for this Texas mom.
AliceAnn Meyer discovered a mean-spirited photo of her disabled 4-year-old son Jameson making the rounds on the Internet early in 2016. Jameson, who has Pfeiffer syndrome, which impacts bone growth in the skull, hands and feet, became a target because of the way he looks.
"The first time I saw it I just kind of looked at it and said 'It's not even funny,'" Meyer said. "Someone actually took the time to sit down and [create] it and I don't understand that. I was shocked, for sure."

She reported it to social media sites, who later removed the cruel photos. Sadly, other Internet users posted the images right back up. But she's not backing down from the fight. Along with continuing to defend her son, she is using this as an opportunity to publicly raise awareness of her son as a human being and of her strong anti-bullying spirit on her blog.
"Exactly one week ago I spent my Saturday night fighting an individual to remove my son’s photo from his Facebook page, where it had been liked 5,000 times and shared nearly 3,000," Meyer wrote. "It was no easy feat and took 100's, maybe even 1,000’s of reports being submitted, an army of people fighting with me. So, to everyone that 'LOL’d,' shared, and posted that meme, let me start by introducing you to the child you find so funny. His name is Jameson. He is very real, and he was born with Pfeiffer syndrome."
To top it all off, she took the same photo people used to make fun of him, and had someone add a positive message to it--just as it should be.
