There have only been THREE cases of polio this year, all of them in Afghanistan.  But did you know that there could be another outbreak in the United States if we aren't proactive in ending this terrible disease?   Check out this video about Paul Alexander who lives in Dallas, TX and who spends most of his day in his iron lung.
 


 
Here is the story of Brady Richard who now maintains Paul Alexander's iron lung.

You can help eradicate polio too!  Your donation is GREATLY needed and appreciated!!!
