1WHO WAS THE FAN WITH DOWN SYNDROME?

What else could be more surprising than meeting your favorite celebrity at the drug store?

Anthony Yorfido, a young man diagnosed with Down syndrome usually visited the medical store. He was a die-hard fan of Aerosmith and so he was looking for tickets of his next concert that was to be held in Welland, Ont. Unfortunately, he could not get any tickets as they were all sold. On his visit to the medical store, he saw a man asking for a back brace. He instantly recognized him.

His mother, Diane stated:  “I’m looking at him and I know his face, but I couldn’t think of his name.” But Anthony did. “He goes, ‘Oh, my God! Steven Tyler, is that you?’”

Within no time, Anthony went and hugged his favorite hero. In return, Steven hugged back and asked him if he was coming to his concert that night.
