Description
Kathryn Black discusses her book, “In the Shadow of Polio.” She begins by explaining that her mother contracted the illness in her 20s and had to be treated in a polio center in Seattle. Her mother was placed in an iron lung, and even after treatment was unable to breathe on her own and couldn’t move from the neck down. She talks about people who contracted polio in the 1950s who are still alive today and living with side effects of the disease. Black discusses Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s battle with polio, and how he started fundraising for research to treat polio. She ends the interview by talking about how she met and talked with nurses who treated her mother in the Seattle polio center.
