Post-Polio Support Group of Orange County (CA) was formed by polio survivors in 1989. Our primary goal is to provide mutual support in facing the challenges of the late effects of polio and Post-Polio Syndrome. We are an 100% volunteer organization and all of our funds come from individual contributions. In conjunction with the Rancho Post Polio Support Group we provide over 500 readers with a monthly newsletter. We conduct educational meetings ever other month. We have members who have volunteered for phone support and to provide personal contact with polio survivors struggling with the many complexities of living with PPS. Our mission is to ensure that every polio survivor in or in the vicinity of Orange County has the opportunity to learn about the late effects of polio, find physicians and therapists who understand polio, and know that our group is here for support.
