In 1949, I contracted polio. I was only 3 months old. From what I was told, the severity of this lasted six months. I didn’t walk until the age of 2. Before that my body was like Jell-O and I had to be carried on a pillow. I have had several surgeries on my right arm and right leg and have had physical therapy. Through the years which turned to decades, I have learned that the only way to overcome this is through exercise. Now, I have two grown children and am active with the Red Cross. Please do not give up. Keep yourselves active in body and mind.
