The early days of polio...
Kurt Sipolski, Richmond, Virginia
I contracted polio in 1948 at the age of two while visiting my grandmother in Illinois with my mother, from our home in Virginia. I was able to recover except for the paralysis in my right leg.
I wore a leg brace for about 10 years, and certainly owe the devotion of my widowed mother for the healing process.
I have written a book about her trials and triumphs entitled, Too Early for Flowers.
