Silent Movies???

     Phil Johnson, chairman of 20 20 Voice CancerThis is a page that I have been wanting to create for a long time for it galls me deeply how some people can be so ignorant and simply stand/sit there gawping at you when you speak! We have not come from another planet, we are still human but there has been two massive events in our lives: major surgery & learning to talk again! There are only around 8,000 of us in the UK so all said & done we are a pretty special bunch of people.

     This page is dedicated to those who have gone through both of the above and survived to tell the tale: and that is what this page is all about. This page is made of/for all of you, the people out there that were temporarily silenced but have now learned to speak again. We need speech, we need to communicate and we need the rest of the population to understand & accept.

     I have happily started off this page with my ‘twopenneth’ and hopefully we will build up a nice portfolio of knowledge from all different people that have undergone this massive & intrusive type of surgery. Life changing it certainly is, but life goes on and we learn to adapt.

My personal welcome to 2020 Voice Cancer.org
