Description

2000: a hot summer in Kyrgyzstan. A dry wind and an annoying cough prompt the author to visit a local hospital in the capital, Bishkek. In this strange land, he first hears the word 'cancer' applied to his condition. Robin Reid pulls no punches, spares us no details in his descent into choking illness, disastrous radiation therapy and final surrender to a laryngectomy. Then comes the recovery, the refusal to accept a 'mute inglorious state', and the rediscovery of his voice. How he did this, the methods he chose, the menatal state required and the back-up therapy available are all detailed in this immensely inspiring and informative story. Essential reading for 'laryngectomees' of all kinds, it also affirms another side of the author's successful struggle for communication, continuing work, and well being: his Christian faith. Here is a man who has endured a personal Calvary, and his recovery is a lesson to us all.
