"I'm not as disabled as many of you, and I have always been reasonably active.  As of blood tests and X-rays about 4 months ago I do not have osteoporosis.  I have apparently inherited my grandfather's hunch, though."

Please describe how polio has changed your life.
My ambition prior to 1948 was to be a professional dancer.After polio, it took many years for me to acknowledge that my goals in life had to change. I was sure that I had the inner strength and self confidence to pursue a professional education and a productive life. I accomplished my revised goals with great physical and emotional effort.
