In the early 1950's Winifred Gardella was a poster child for the March of Dimes. Her picture was published in the newspapers to raise huge sums of money for the March of Dimes in San Francisco. Nationally, her image raised millions of dollars to help fight the dreaded crippler, polio. Her sad, innocent face and her tiny body supported on crutches and leg braces, made many Americans reach into their pocets to donate.
But the March of Dimes couldn't help Winifred. After tow and half years under their medical doctor's expert care her parents were: "There is no hope."
Despite this dire prediction, her grandparents were determined to find a cure. They were not about to accept the opinion of so-called "medical experts." They decided to choose their own health care and they took Winifred to Dr. Lewis Robertson, a chiropractor. In less than six months of having her nerve interference corrected, Winifred Gardella therw away her crutches and braces and went for a walk with her chiropractor. She has been walking ever since!
