22nd December, 2016.
We would just like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who have been involved in raising funds for FaceUp as it has allowed us to buy electrolarynxes for some of our patients who have had a laryngectomy.
This surgery involves removal of the voice box. The electrolarynx is a communication aid that allows that person to have a voice again so that they can communicate with their friends and family.
Without the fundraising efforts of those supporting FaceUp it would have not been possible to provide this life enhancing equipment to these patients.
We are so grateful for your support.
