Additional Details

". . . In my own case I have been greatly helped and have, in fact, improved more during the past year than during the previous five years. A year ago I had great difficulty in walking with braces and crutches but now I get around with a good deal of ease with one brace, one crutch and one cane. As you probably know, the effects of Infantile Paralysis take many years to get over but the improvement seems to be steady and permanent if the right kind of exercise and treatment is followed out."
