Hi, I'm Peter, a Polio Survivor from the epidemic of the early 1950's here in the UK, and welcome to our fully interactive application. Here I am gradually building a database of Medical Professionals and Organisations, etc., dedicated to helping the millions of Polio Warriors around the world now experiencing the debilitating effects of Post-Polio Syndrome by everyone adding their favourite Doctor, or Organisation. You can also add your own stories related to your life experiences and adventures with PPS for other members to read and share.
I was 4 years old when the Polio virus caught me and over the next few years, after being totally paralyzed, spending some time in an iron lung, and intensive ( and occasionally painful physiotherapy ), I made a good recovery and began to live a fairly normal life.
And then, in 1964, aged 14, I had to have a spinal fusion to try and control my kyphoscoliosis developing as a result of weak chest muscles as a result of the Polio virus.
At that time and with the medical knowledge available all Polio survivors were told to exercise as much as possible and used the phrase 'Use it or lose it'.
Unfortunately this approach was totally incorrect and as a result many Polio Survivors are now experiencing what is being called 'Post-Polio Syndrome' with severe disabling effects. We are all now being told 'conserve to preserve', the complete opposite to the previous advice.
I hope you will find this App and Website fun and easy to use and helpful. If you have any comments or suggestions please don't hesitate to get in touch.The link below will take you to the members' website.

How can I use this App?
You are a Polio Survivor. No, hold on there! After spending your life after Polio with so much strength and determination, achieving so many good things, (maybe a few sad as well). to produce such long lasting memories,you are not a Survivor, you are a Polio Fighter, NO for achieving so much more than the vast percentage of the population, you are not a fighter, but a POLIO WARRIOR.One of my favourite activities is to go sea fishing and on this day, not unlike many others, I caught a lump of timber, parts of an old fishing net, a confused but very greedy crab, but not one fish. But never mind there is a good fish and chip shop just in town !
Hi, I have decided to run through a short explanation of each menu item available on this App, or website.Firstly you can now login using your Facebook credentials which I hope will make it easier and less intimidating. I know how this can be when accessing a new App for the first time. I will also add that I do not have any access to your Facebook credentials as these are not stored anywhere on the App or website.Okay, starting at the top.1. Welcome - This is an introduction to myself and what I hope to achieve in the development of this App.2. Support Groups - This is a map based directory of Polio Support Groups with contact details where available. When you access this page and all similar pages, your actual location is a blue tag, with all Support Groups with red tags. If you click or touch a red tag, more details are available together with a map of their location at the bottom of the screen. Directions are also available courtesy of Google Maps. All of this information applies to all Map pages.3. Medical Practitioners - This is a map based directory of Medical or Healthcare Professionals with an understanding and some knowledge of Post-Polio Syndrome. 4. Online Books/Articles - As it says this is a listing of articles, etc., available to read that have a direct reference to Polio and Post-Polio Syndrome5. Get Out There - These are resources to help you get out and about. Beginning at the top left the icons mean : a. Wheelchair Walks b. Public Toilets c. Car Parking d. Restaurants, etc.. e. A Fuel Service ( UK and Canada only this time ) f. Accessible amenities world-wide g. Google Maps h. Accessible Attractions i. Holidays for the disabled.6. The most important - A map showing the location of Polio Survivors.And by pressing 'More', the last item is a Social Network which works almost exactly like Facebook, except that it is limited to users of Polio Warriors only.

Thanks to the thousands who have installed the App, or used the website, and more than 350 Polio Survivors registered on our map, with the assistance of the Melinda Gates Foundation, I am looking into the possibility of creating a new charity called 'The World-Wide Fellowship of Polio Warriors'. As we shall not be having expensive offices, and a squad of paid employees, I am hoping that we shall be able to offer Membership as free and all Polio Survivors, totally without prejudice, will be invited to join. As the registration process is rather long-winded, and I shall be working through reams of paperwork, I will keep you all updated on progress, and in the meantime I would be pleased if anyone would consider putting their name forward as a Trustee. ( I understand we should have a minimum of 3, but I would prefer around 6 ), and as treasurer. All meetings will be held online using Skype, or something similar ( any costs involved in setting this up to be covered by the charity ). Any charity business will be directed through the 'Social Network' option within our App, Polio Warriors, to avoid using the ‘leaky’ Facebook!
Maybe at some stage we will be able to arrange a ‘get together’ somewhere in the world, but this is something a long way into the life of the charity.
The aim of our charity is to ensure that every Polio Survivor has access to at least a local telephone support and should never feel that they are alone and neglected, because they won’t be.
It is critical that the map directory continues to grow so that we are seen as a formidable group of people, so if you are aware of any Polio Survivors in your area, or support group if you are fortunate enough to attend one, please suggest that they add their names and location to the map, using my email address, firstname.lastname@example.org
I would also like to approach any suitable Patrons to maintain the profile of the charity, so if you can suggest anyone, please let me know and I will make contact with them.
As you can imagine, updating the map can be time consuming and I can appoint some moderators to help me with this. If you would like to help, and all it means is that I will send you the Polio Survivors details and you then enter them onto the various databases, please just pm me and we can get this sorted out.
To close, I must thank all of you for helping me to develop this project and let’s hope and pray that from now onwards the road heads downwards.
