Who Is Lorene Poss?
Lorene Poss was raised in a small town in Texas in the early 1900’s. She was married with four young children when her husband contracted polio and became disabled. She worked all day picking cotton in the hot Texas sun to put food on the table, and in the evenings used Sister Kenny’s physical treatment for polio on her husband.
This involved hours of muscle massage and the use of hot pads to keep the body from becoming paralyzed. This method worked and her husband eventually was able to walk again with the help of a cane.
Lorene was a devoted Christian with a strong work ethic, and she taught her children and grandchildren that all things were possible with God, good values, and hard work.
