A Letter from Mother

Carl Chinnery; Lee's Summit, Missouri

In 1998 I was asked to be Polio Plus Chairman for District 6040 or Rotary International. In order to prepare myself I requested my mother to make some notes about our families experience with polio. Two weeks later she presented me with the attached letter. The majority of the content of the letter was brand new to me and my siblings. Neither she nor my Dad had talked about the polio experience for over 45 years.
