Polio Survivor Stories & Photographs

Awareness on the Rise – One story at a time.

Post-Polio Canada believes memories should be cherished and not lost. If you or someone you know is a polio survivor, we encourage you to contact us and share your story.

Personal tales and photographs from across Canada are curated online by Post-Polio Canada. Some of these stories have never been publically shared.

The history of polio is still being written as global eradication efforts continue. Polio survivors -- be they days or decades removed from their experiences -- all have unique encounters with a disease that has affected millions worldwide.

To share your experiences please email your story and any related pictures to: info@poliocanada.com.
