TOMMY'S WORLD IS ALL UPSIDE DOWN Or maybe it's just the world that looks that way the world that forgets that polio is still a terrifying crippler. Tommy Davey was stricken with paralytic polio when he was 14 months old. That was over four years ago. Arms, legs, chest muscles, all paralyzed. His earliest memory is the iron lung and the world seen through a mirror. What he sees is the white, hushed, institutional world of the hospital. But here he seems to be looking at you - at me - at all of us. He seems to be reminding us that polio is a costly crippler still. Tommy is one of 50,000 polio patients receiving March of Dimes aid. Your help in the past literally kept him alive. Your help also enabled scientists to develop weapons against polio, like the Salk vaccine and advanced rehabilitation techniques. Your contribution to the NEW March of Dimes in 1960 offers new hope to polio victims. For sufferers like Tommy your help can make the world right side up agsia. Blue Cross Notes Milestone | Dr. A. F.
