BUCK MARTIN memorial GRANT -  current


"Buck Martin WW-VIP Grant"

In honor of Bruce "Buck" Martin, who left a bequest to WebWhispers, Inc., of $10,000 for this purpose, there will be a grant of no more than $1,000 each year for 10 years, starting in 2013. 

This money is to be a yearly grant to a new laryngectomee, a WebWhispers member, to supplement the expenses for attending the IAL Annual Meeting & Voice Institute as a Voice Institute Patient/Pupil. This is to continue yearly until the fund is exhausted. The choice of a deserving laryngectomee is to be decided by the WebWhispers Board of Directors using guidelines left as part of the bequest."

If the grant fund is increased by future donations, the length of time will be extended to more than 10 years using the same rules.




The Eric Dolinger Memorial Grant sponsored by Atos Medical Inc.

For Eric Dolinger, next to the love he had for his family, was his love and compassion for his patients - especially those patients who have undergone a laryngectomy. This group was special to him; most having beaten cancer, others experiencing recurrence, and many living with the never-ending thought of recurrence. Eric’s joy was helping people, helping them understand their new life, helping them regain a means of communication, and helping them get back to living what would be their “new normal”. Eric was always impressed with those that lived with adversity yet maintained such a positive “get on with living” attitude.

The Eric Dolinger Memorial Grant is an annual grant of $4,000.00 available to deserving organizations that are committed, like Eric, to helping the laryngectomized person get on with living. In 2013 the grant will be distributed as follows: $3,000.00 to be divided equally between The International Association of  Laryngectomees and the WebWhispers organization. The remaining $1,000.00 will go to the Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary/Stanford TEP Course to assist healthcare professionals to gain a better understanding of the needs of the laryngectomized person and their families.

We commemorate the life of our friend and colleague.
