Malaysian Laryngectomy Association (MLA) was recently established in PPUKM on the 7th April 2017 which was chaired by Associate Prof Dr Marina Mat Baki and Professor Dato’ Dr Abdullah Sani as the advisor. The purpose of this association is to offer help and care to all laryngeal cancer patients throughout Malaysia who had undergone surgery (total laryngectomy) in order to optimize their quality of life. The groups are divided into the clinical and patient groups. For the patient groups, several meetings have been organized where the laryngectomees meet and discuss the issues such as choice of voice rehabilitation, the process for
obtaining “orang kurang upaya’ card and so forth. The charity events also was organized at yearly basis to collect some fund for the association and at the same time to increase the laryngectomees self esteem by promoting communication with the public as well as among laryngectomees themselves.
