  1. Congratulations on forming this much needed network and support system. I heard about your organisation on Radio National.
    I know of two people who are struggling to speak after throat operations.
    I had a problem myself a few years back with a continually hoarse, strained voice.
    It was checked out and nothing physically wrong but stress was causing my problem.
    As a voice coach I am very interested in this area and wish you the very best with your work.


    1. Thank you for that very warm reception Camille.
      We all feel passionately about the need to connect and support each other, while at the same time, doing our part to advocate for research into the full life impact of chronic voice issues.
      We are excited when we received feedback like yours… so thank you.
      You may have seen our upcoming forum in Sydney – you and/or your voice affected contacts are very welcome to join us. https://australiandysphonianetwork.org/2018/06/25/forum-2018/
