MEET EDMUNDO VASELLIO | San Diego Down Syndrome’s Fundraiser on CrowdRise

MEET EDMUNDO VASELLIO.
At 72, Edmundo Vasellio is the oldest man in California with Down Syndrome.

On January 17, 1942, in Banning, California, Edmundo Vasellio was born as the sixth of seven children. He was your average child: he enjoyed playing with insects, possessed an affinity for exploring, along with dancing, eating, and playing sports. Edmundo lived life to his whims and desired, and was greatly loved by those who met him.

But Edmundo was different.

When he played with fire ants, he often pushed them over one another, or sat on anthills.
When he explored, he often took off running into the mountains, sometimes for hours, until a police investigation crew brought him home.
When he danced, he spun in circles until he got dizzy, while blaring Michael Jackson.
When he played sports, it was for the special Olympics.

Edmundo has Down syndrome.

Growing up, Edmundo spent most of his youth at home for the reason that at this time, those with Down syndrome were unable to receive the usual public education experience. Edmundo stayed at home with his pet dogs pursuing his hobbies and interests until one day, a woman who was selling Avon beauty products to Edmundo’s mother noticed him. The woman, whose daughter also happened to have been affected by Down syndrome, informed Edmundo’s mother of a special needs workshop.
Edmundo’s time in the workshop aided in the development of his personality. “When he [Edmundo] first started the workshops, he had a very hard time adjusting …
