Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men,
after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. (Colossians 2:8).

Hi again,
this is my Post-Polio Syndrome (PPS) sub-site. Here you will learn about the disability that so many of the "forgotten survivors" of the great polio plagues of the 1940's and 50's now struggle with and find some great links where you can find encouragement and resources for any loved ones that struggle with late effect polio issues. It is my prayer that this information will be a blessing to you all.
