As a physician and a laryngectomee I am very aware of the challenges laryngectomees face.
I am sending you a link to a video of a lecture I gave on May 16, 2012 to the Department of Surgery at Texas A&M in Temple . The 45 minutes lecture is about my personal experiences as a patient with head and neck cancer, dealing with the medical and psychological aspects of life as a laryngectomee. I am introduced by Dr James Brien the Head of Pediatric Infectious Diseases.
I hope that you will find the talk interesting.
