The New Voice Club consists of members who have had some form of laryngeal cancer and have undergone surgical treatment or laryngectomy. After having their vocal chords removed, patients lose their voices completely. Rehabilitation aims to help patients learn how to speak again, with or without speech devices. It also reaches out to new patients and renders emotional support to members and their families in coping with a ‘new voice’ after surgery. Speech practice sessions conducted by its members have enabled many to regain their ability to communicate with others.
Membership is free.
