Please describe how polio has changed your life.
I got polio at age 5 while living is Sacramento California my father had come down with it about a week before me. I spent several mounths in an iron lung and had to use leg braces on both legs at first to walk again. I was able a few years later to only use one on my left leg and have used one there all my life. I don't know how to describe how it changed my life because it is the only way of life I have ever known.
