Val Kilmer shares his personal cancer journey with fans
Val shared, “I have behaved bizarrely to some. I deny none of this and have no regrets because I have lost and found parts of myself that I never knew existed.” Val lost his voice due to a tracheotomy, but thanks to technology fans can hear him speak once again. He thought it was impossible but is very grateful.
He added, “I’m grateful to the entire team at Sonatic who masterfully restored my voice in a way I’ve never imagined possible. As human beings, the ability to communicate is the core of our existence and the side effects from throat cancer have made it difficult for others to understand me.”
