She lost her voice, actually she lost her entire larynx due to cancer before turning 21. She had been using an electrolarynx, which looks like a microphone, to talk for 5.5years.
There're tons of scientific stuff explaining the use of electrolarynx which i wont bore u guys with but basically, you sound like a robot. in a not so funny way.
i mean, she's a GIRL. you know. she's supposed to sound all pitchy and girly and YET she sounds like a machine!!
However, what amazes was the fact that she didnt shun herself frm public. yer. she went to the supermarket. went to work, with that voice.
throughout the entire program, whenever i hear that voice, i tried to put myself in her shoes and really, i cant imagine. facing the world. u know. with THAT voice.
nevertherless, she's not a wallower.
She is like so positive and so optimistic. really! and with this condition, how can it be easy?
eventually, she went for a procedure to enable her to use her own voice to speak and it was extremely successful!!
and do u know wht's the best thing abt Amy?
" i sound better than i did 7weeks ago and i KNOW i will be better 7 weeks later"
she's got so much faith and hope and she's a fighter!
not many people. who are "normal" embodies this spirit and i take my hats off her!
She's my motivation and i truly wna be like Amy; who finds the best in each and every crappy situation(((:
SO EVERYONE OUT THERE!!
ESP THOSE WHO ARE FEELING DEJECTED
because of yr GPA, because of some bad situation you're going through.
HAVE A LITTLE FAITH!
