Who are Polio Survivors?

While Polio is a horrible, crippling disease, not everyone is affected the same.  Many people do recover from some or all of the effects and go on to live great lives.  The chances of this are of course higher in North American where the medical support system is available to help.

While these people may have survived the initial onset of Polio, there is another problem.  Something called Post Polio Syndrome where polio returns to do additional harm.

We will be presenting several videos in this section, giving the stories of some of our local survivors.
