After undergoing a laryngectomy, Brien spent the next 18 years helping others going through the same thing, volunteering as a Laryngectomy Support Visitor in RBWH’s speech pathology department.

Brien's procedure meant the removal of his voice box, which can lead to significant changes to the way that patients communicate, breathe and swallow.

As the sole Laryngectomy Support Visitor in Brisbane for nearly two decades, he has spent so much time with patients and their families prior to their operations, which gave them the opportunity to ask questions to someone who has experienced the surgery firsthand.

“I try to keep it happy for them. I crack a few jokes. I’m trying to show them that life goes on after this operation. I’ve travelled the world and lived a full life," Brien said. 🥰
