A polio story...the story of a child who unknowingly participated in a very important chapter of North American history. A painful chapter that taught Michael and hundreds of thousands others like him how it was indeed possible to survive and thrive after a potentially deadly disease left them disabled. From the onset of polio until the age of thirteen he experienced many elective surgeries to correct a deformed limb. The surgeries enabled him to live with moderate disability up until the age of 35. Thirty-three years following the initial onslaught of poliomyelitis, post polio syndrome has taken him back into the confines of disability while at the same time leading him onto a path of compelling and varied life experiences.
