Joy Kjellbotn was diagnosed with polio when she was just 11 years old in 1953. She currently lives at George Pearson Centre and she wrote to us about her life experiences before, during, and after living in the iron lung. In 2012, Joy self-published a book called “A Moment in Time (that changed everything)” about her experiences.
The iron lung was exactly what I needed at the time. Now, there is so much new respiratory equipment to choose from, that you are sure to find something that meets your needs and fits your lifestyle, perfectly.
