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 laryngectomees in the world.
The purpose of this survey is to learn hear directly from people living with dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) and how diet modifications (thickened liquids, softer or pureed foods, etc.) and changes in social/emotional well-being affect their experience when dining out in the community.

Laryngectomy Support Groups
As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Lary’s Speakeasy’s mission is to provide resources to throat cancer and laryngectomy patients through social media outlets, free educational events around the country, and distribution of new, unopened laryngectomy supplies to patients in need.
In honor of our founder, friend, and past President Louis Trammell, Lary’s Speakeasy offers a number of scholarships to first time attendees at the IAL/Voice institute annual conference.
More information and an application will be posted when the IAL announces their 2024 conference dates.
