    Phone numbers

    Everywhere I go online to try and get help all I find are phone numbers. Cancer has taken my ability to talk well enough on a phone, so what and where can I go. Even the ACS website has nothing but phone numbers. By far this has been the hardest thing to try and overcome sents my surgery 5/11/11. I still do not know what I would do if I needed 911 other than dailing it and ringing a cowbell or using a clicker to send SOS over and over till someone on the other end sents someone to the GPS of my cell phone that I use to text.

      There are all kinds of speech synthesizers available that will translate your text into spoken words over a telephone.

      Go to www.cancer.org and send them an email describing your situation. This is the American Cancer Society website. They deal with people in this position all the time. They can help you without talking on the phone.
