About Franklin

My name is Franklin Delano Roosevelt. I am the former president of the United States. I began my career in law, but quickly found more interest in politics. I was diagnosed with polio at the age of 39, but I haven’t let the disease stop me from doing anything I’ve dreamed of. I also developed the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis in the hopes that one day no one else need go through the daily struggles I have.
