Join the North Carolina Spasmodic Dysphonia Support Groups for a virtual meeting on Saturday, December 4, 2021 at 10:00 AM EST.
We will be discussing the book of Past President, Dot Sowerby, “Speechless No More: A Life Transformed By A Voice Disorder”.
Speechless No More: A Life Transformed by Voice Disorder is a memoir by Dot Sowerby about her struggles with a voice disorder that rendered her speech tremulous and broken. It is a lesson in courage and persistence during a time when the medical profession was just beginning to understand the neurological basis of spasmodic dysphonia. Dot’s story, like so many, is about maneuvering an obstacle course of faulty diagnoses and self-doubt before she came to understand the source of her condition. Both distressing and inspiring, her quest to find answers to the cause of her voice condition and find a treatment for it is told with honesty and spirit.
This new edition of Speechless covers the next twenty years of Dot’s life and twenty more years of progress in the treatment of spasmodic dysphonia, thanks in part to the passion and energy of all our friends and colleagues who work tirelessly to support the work of NSDA.
Board Member from California, Marcia Sterling, worked closely with Dot on her new book and she will also be joining us.
We are very excited for this meeting and hope to see you there!

“We don’t yet see things clearly. We are squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing Him directly just as He knows us!”
— 1 Corinthians 13:12
We Love You Always Dan!
