Yes, we do need to keep in touch because we are going to be the future leaders of our generation to keep all the survivors in touch and also keep them inform of what we are going through.lol.... I'm not sure if you have a fb account or not but if you do we can communicate there too. there's also sarah that i met through fb and she is about your age and she is also a polio survivor. i think we need to keep everyone aware that polio is still out there. maybe it's not that wide spread here in the US but in other countries polio is still affecting young kids as well as adults. where in san diego do you live?
