Laryngeal cancer treatment
Jane A

My husband had surgery and radiation 3 years ago. Now he has a reoccurrence and is looking at a laryngectomy. It will change his life drastically. Where can he get phone support from someone who has had this procedure? Is there a support group near Langley, BC?

@Jane A Hi Jane……I do hope other members can soon chime in and help with ideas for a support group/chat for your husband….

@Jane A Hi Jane … am not sure about BC, but when I went through NCP, stage 4 (i.e. nasopharyngeal - HNC) in PMH, Toronto in 2006, I was connected to Judy from a support program and who resided in Yellowknife - she had gone through similar cancer - but with slightly different treatment. She would be calling me now and then to check if I had any issues and I was also given her contact # in case I do need to talk to her or if I had any questions. Being on my own then, I was most grateful for this support … someone I can call if and when I do need to talk to someone who understands and is aware of my situation.

Perhaps you may want to check with the hospital if they do have such a support program where you can connect to for support?

Wishing you and husband all the best .. take care!!
