Carl Andrews had his larynx removed as a result of throat cancer in June, 1997. He had been employed as the Manager of the Westpark Apartment Complex. After the operation Carl attempted to speak using the neck vibrator but due to the scarring from the surgery, the sound did not transmit well into his mouth where speech is produced. He heard about the UltraVoice which creates the sound directly in the mouth and obtained his unit in August of 2000 through the Veterans Administration Medical Center (VAMC) in Philadelphia. (Carl was in the Navy C.B.'s in Vietnam.) After getting the UltraVoice Carl was able to return to work supervising the maintenance staff.
