The mission of the IAL is to support individuals and their families, who have lost their voice due to the removal of their larynx by supporting lost chords clubs, assisting and coordinating educational/support conferences and continuing the legacy of one laryngectomee helping another out of voicelessness.
WebWhispers was started in 1996 for those who had questions about larynx cancer treatments, surgery, recovery, and what life is like after laryngectomy surgery. We are now the largest support group for individual laryngectomee survivors of larynx and other throat cancers. We offer advice from those who have been there and education at the time it is needed.
WebWhispers members will support you in your rehabilitation and you may find many of the answers to your questions on the WebWhispers site.
I am happy to announce the publication of "The Laryngectomee Guide Expanded Edition” 3rd Edition.
The 277 pages Expanded Guide is an updated and revised edition of the original Laryngectomee Guide. The expanded edition of the guide is an updated and expanded version of the earlier 2013 edition. It contains additional information on most topics, describes newer devices and products that are available for laryngectomee care.
I hope that you will find the Guide helpful.
