Our primary purpose is to provide practical and educational information and support by way of the Internet to laryngectomees and to all persons diagnosed with or treated for cancer that affects the larynx or those who have suffered damage to the vocal cords. We include caregivers in our membership. Support is directed toward creating understanding, providing educational opportunities and rehabilitation assistance. Through contact with other patients, caregivers and medical personnel, we offer the opportunity to learn.
This is an easy site to use but we hope the website map will make it easier to find the information you need and to get there in a hurry. Our Navigation Bar is across the top of every page with eight titles, which go straight to that department or you can scroll down to find a link to the webpage you are looking for.
We drew our Website Map, following the horizontal menu across the website page.
