Triumph on Baker Road: How the Walsh Family Defeated Polio

by: Rose Walsh Landers, Mike Waller
The year was 1955, the month was September. Keron and Anne Walsh and their 14 children were on their family farm in northern Illinois, preparing for the opening of the new school year, when 5-year-old Rose complained about a headache. Their doctor identified the culprit: polio, one of the most dreaded and crippling diseases of the era. Thus began a two-year siege that the Walsh family confronted with courage, prayers and strong faith. In less than a month after the first diagnosis, 10 more of the Walsh children came down with polio, five with cases so serious they had to be hospitalized.
