      While the results of the total laryngectomy I had in 1990, at the age of 39, are evident every day, it became my "new normal" many years ago. However, I never let it define me, and I've had tremendous success in a new line of work and life in general over the last 20+ years. You can become a victim or a victor - attitude is everything (within reason, of course).

    I am a throat cancer survivor, total laryngectomy done in July 1990. A positive attitude is key.
