Yes, can be. Polio vaccines have only been around for about 50+ years, so there are lots of people that are still living and had polio as a kid, and years later still suffer from long term impacts.
I am sure they can't take up more than 1 booth, can they?
if it's you, it is a hell of a lot.
Hey - one person could take up an entire booth. Those iron lungs are bulky
That disease was eradicated in the 50's, so the member of the group must be old and really unable to move forward if they're still needing "support" after 50 years! Could be a problem!
Actually had a youth minister's wife who had polio, and she must be only in her 40s now. Don't know how she contracted it, but I think there are still some people who are affected who did not get it prior to the 1950s. Even after they get over the initial effects, it likes to raise its ugly head now and then later on in your life and can affect you again. Hence the need for a POST-polio support group.
Strippers seem to contract Polelio quite often.
You guys are insensitive SOB's. As a matter of fact, the aging process is turning out to be overly cruel to polio victims. Something about the "change of life" mechanism triggers the body into thinking it has polio all over again and doctors have named it "post polio syndrome." It kills.
At least they get all the good parking spots.
The bigger question here is why they're having their support group meetings at Braum's. Couldn't even get a conference room at the library, or a nice park bench maybe?
My sister had polio when she was 3 in 1946, it is a horrible diease,it turned her foot so bad and she spent several months in Shriners Hospital in St Louis before she could walk again, she is now 65 and still has to watch how she does things that we do every day without thinking about it.
Dude!It sounds like an opportunity for Ice Cream!Red Nick
FDR didn't need no support group!
