Please describe how polio has changed your life.
Polio has given me the life experience as expressed in the children's book, The Little Engine That Could. With prayers from many people I never met, I was given the strength, fortitude and vision that I could overcome obstacles. This mindset of possibility thinking has served me well throughout my life as wife, mother, grandmother, businesswoman, community activist.
Hi Judy! Congrats on getting your group going here! That's super! As you can tell, the San Diego group is flourishing, and I believe half of it is the great communication we have courtesy of PT.org. I believe that every group has that potential with a place to highlight what your group is up to and what is planned.
Thinking of you daily in Florida and can't wait till you and Bill get back to San Diego! I'd love to find time to have a coffee, breakfast or lunch together on your next trip. We have MUCH to discuss!
