  1. I was 3 yoa. In 1950, when my father swooped me up (after laying untreated for several long hours in an Ashland, kentucky hospital) . He took to children s hospital in Ona, wv. I was in qarrented for 9 months. Polio left with weakness in my right arm and leg. After several corrective surgeries and learning to walk 7 times, I was left with limited walking. I worked as a 911 operated but was forced to retire at 42 yoa after being sandwiched between
    2 vehicles. Can you informed me of any funding for polio victims?? I would like to locate other survivors in Kentucky. I have always had problems with syndrome (off and on).
