Welcome To Lary’s Speakeasy

A laryngectomy is the surgical removal of the voice box. After the surgery, patients are unable to talk. While many regain the ability to “voice”, the condition is permanent. Lary’s Speakeasy is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides supplies to the laryngectomee community, 100% free of charge. We also provide support, education and advocacy for the patients and Speech Pathologists. We are an all volunteer organization and all funds go directly in support of our mission. Our Facebook group is the largest group for laryngectomy patients in the world.

Our Team

Louis Trammell started Lary’s Speakeasy on Facebook for the members of his first live group meeting, which started at Rush University Medical Center on March 17, 2011 so that they would be able to access up-to-date information about their recoveries.

For the first few years, we only had 11 members, but as he joined the other Head & Neck FB groups he saw a huge need for more resources for throat cancer and laryngectomy folks.
​We were the only throat cancer group to store information that the members could access time and time again.
