Trivia Quiz Some famous people survived the polio disease in their childhood and went on to become famous in their adulthood. I will give you clues describing a famous survivor and you will have to choose the right answer. Simple.

Definition (from www.disabled-world.com/artman/publish/famous-polio.shtml): "Poliomyelitis, often called polio or infantile paralysis, is an acute viral infectious disease spread from person to person, primarily via the fecal-oral route." Enhanced vaccination efforts have almost led to global eradication.

Enjoy your quiz. My source is geocities.com, disabled-world.com and wikipedia.

Great Quiz - Another (Canadian) songwriter who was afflicted by polio in the early 50's was Joni Anderson, who married a guy named Mitchell.
