I read he overcame polio as a child. How do you overcome polio? If you are infected you either 1) recover with no symptoms or 2) live with the effects for life.

You can not influence the outcome.

@gollum,
An old neighbor of mine had polio as a child and was cured of it.
However, he had a recurrence in later life when he was in his 70s.

@gollum,
Maybe it's part of the modern tendency where people don't have diseases, they "fight" them. In my day people died of cancer, now they "lose their battle" with it. To a certain extent I can see that it's good to have a positive attitude and to seek to have the best possible life in spite of a medical condition or disability, but you do see a lot of woo medicine stuff about fighting e.g. cancer by having a "positive attitude".
