Description Transcript (32 pages) of interview by Becky B. Lloyd with Sharon Ann Jensen Duram on July 11, 2010
Abstract Duram (b. 1939) discusses growing up in Brigham City while working in her father's general store until her early twenties. She contracted polio at age twelve in early September 1951. She describes getting sick. She spent ten days in the hospital and relates what she remembers of her experiences there. After hospitalization, she received physical therapy at Dee Hospital in Ogden, along with heat pack therapy, which she describes. She missed several months of school before returning. Ms. Duram started to develop symptoms of post-polio syndrome at approximately age 40. She describes the progression of symptoms that finally led to full-time use of a wheelchair in 2009. Ms. Duram received a nursing degree and worked as a nurse for many years until taking medical retirement. This interview is part of the Polio Oral History Project. Interviewer: Becky Lloyd
