Donate to APPA


The Atlanta Post-Polio Association provides support, education, and fellowship for
Polio survivors, their families, and all who have an interest in Post-Polio Syndrome. APPA is based
in Atlanta and meets monthly to share and learn from experts and each other. 

What is Post-Polio Syndrome?

Post Polio Syndrome (PPS) is a condition that affects polio survivors years after the initial attack
of the polio virus. Common symptoms include muscle weakness, pain from joint degeneration and
increased skeletal deformation. There can also be respiratory muscle weakness resulting in sleep
and eating disorders.

If you or someone you know is experiencing…

• Weakness in your arms or legs (whether affected by polio or not)

• Trouble with balance

• Increased fatigue

• Increased pain from skeletal deformation

…you might benefit from this group

We invite you to join us!

Contributions help to educate the public and healthcare community concerning polio. We respond
to the needs of individuals who suffer from post-polio syndrome through group meetings, educational
programming, newsletters, and advocacy. APPA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. All contributions 
are tax deductible.
