Hi, I’m Jinny i live with Polio
I was born in 1940 and had polio in 1941. There wasn’t another case of this in the area at the time, so we have often wondered where it came from. The hospital didn’t know how to treat me but an old Uncle told me of a gentleman who he thought could help. I went regularly for treatment for 16 years, during which I developed an arm. It wouldn’t have grown otherwise, so I am very lucky!! (Please can I add more later). I’m so slow lol
