Nathan Guy said he got the idea for the film a year ago when he went to a meeting of the Central Kansas Polio Survivors Group in Hutchinson. Guy said he was moved to make the film because the polio survivors he met ``have such a gung-ho attitude about overcoming obstacles.''
One woman in the movie spent six weeks in an iron lung, while another lost a son to the disease and had three other children who survived it. Polio killed thousands and left many others disabled.
He's been showing 9-minute trailer of the film to raise $30,000 to complete the documentary.
If Guy can finish the film, it will be shown at the Post-Polio Health International Conference April 23-25 at Warm Springs, Ga.
