Steven Tyler Made A Disabled Fan’s Dreams Come True
It’s not every day that you get to meet one of America’s most renowned rock musicians. It’s even more unlikely that said musician would treat you like a close friend. Yet, that’s what happened when Anthony Yorfido, a young man from Niagara Falls, ran into Steven Tyler, the frontman of Aerosmith. What began as a chance encounter at a medical supplies store soon became a moment that would change Anthony’s life forever. Read on to see what amazing things Tyler did for this kind fan.
Just An Ordinary Day
It was a Wednesday in March when Anthony and his mother, Diane, headed to a store in Niagara Falls. Diane is a waitress in the Fallsview Casino nearby and Anthony is a busy bee, working two jobs.
Despite having Down Syndrome, Anthony’s infectious personality makes him a shoo-in for customer service. He works at both 7-Eleven and Walmart, but is far from burning out thanks to all of his passion. Anthony’s true dream has nothing to do with retail, though.
