Nancy Wright Beasley was diagnosed with paralytic polio at age 6 in 1951, before the Salk vaccine was developed. After she endured months of isolation at Roanoke Crippled Children's Hospital, the doctors said she would never walk. Be inspired as Nancy explains both how she learned to walk again and how she used her talents as an author and member of the Rotary Club of Brandermill (Midlothian), Virginia, USA, to raise thousands of dollars for PolioPlus. She will debut a video trailer for Saving Sara, her first play, during the breakout session. Information will be provided as to how Rotary clubs can access the play as a means to raise funds for PolioPlus.
