Polio and Me provides a view of the past, present, and future—the saga of one boy’s pain, fear, and loneliness—the long struggle to develop a vaccine and effective treatments—the world-wide goal to eradicate the polio virus, and in some twenty-first century cancer research trials, the polio virus eliminated cancerous tumors.

  1. Thank you for posting my book, Polio and Me. More millennials need to know the history of what happened during the Polio epidemics so they will not allow history to repeat itself.
