The Pxxxxx Lxxxxx Club (PXX)

A Charitable Support Group for Pxxxxxx Cancer Laryngectomees



Hi!  

So glad you are here.

We are constantly updating this website.   Feel free to look around.   Your feedback to us will be most welcome!

The Pxxx Laryngectomy Club (PXX) aims to offer support and care to the laryngectomees and their families in Pxxxx.   We also encourage understanding and support by the public.

Laryngectomy is the removal of the larynx and separation of the airway from the mouth, nose and oesophagus.   The Laryngectomee breaths through the neck, a stoma.   It is done in the cases of laryngeal cancer.   However, many laryngeal cancer cases are now treated only with radiation and chemotherapy, or other laser procedures, and Laryngectomy is performed when those treatments fail to conserve the larynx.

If you are a Laryngectomee you would be most welcome to come along on your own
or with your partner.

→   Please fill out the   Membership Application Form   and send it to our Club Secretary.

Hi All

I have just joined your club, I'm an Ex British Serviceman living in Oslo in Norway, I work as a long distance Truck driver, I had my Laryngectomy in February 2010 but as i'm a young man of 50 I must continue working until 67.

I use a provox prosthesis and have done since the operation, Mine was not cancer so I didn't have Radiotherapy or Chemo However the full Laryngectomy Operation was the same as the cancer victims, I would be most happy to have communication through E/mail with anyone who wishes to converse,

Regards

Dr. Itzhak Brook I am a physician who became a laryngectomee because of throat cancer.
I am dedicating much of my time to helping fellow laryngectomees and have created a Web site for this purpose.   ( http://dribrook.blogspot.com/ )
It contains helpful practical information, access to my book, "My Voice," and updates on issues concerning head and neck cancer.
I hope that the members of you support group will find the information there helpful.

All the best,

Itzhak Brook MD
