This interesting story tells about a man who is one of the few people in the world who still must use an iron lung.  An iron lung is a device which helps the paralyzed person breath. 
 
One might think a man living with polio in an iron lung would know about Rotary. But it wasn't until Paul Alexander had a business meeting with a member in Duncanville, Texas, earlier this year that he learned Rotary fights to eradicate the very disease that left him almost completely paralyzed.
