It was the day of the homecoming parade. My friends and I made a float to enter into the contest. I knew that nothing would get in the way of me going. And then I collapsed. When I woke up I was at home. My mom walked into the room. Took my temperature and told me I had a fever. I was going to have to have to miss the parade and take a trip to the doctor. The doctor drew some blood and gave me the worst news of my life. I had Polio! Polio is a disease that has no cure. I was paralyzed from the neck down. I was put thorough a series of treatments. Read the book to hear more of the most dreadful time of my life.
