I'm Alex Garay and I'm a head and neck cancer survivor 2005. Due to my radiation treatment I suffered severe damage to my jaw connecting muscles - I could only open my mouth about 6 mm. My doctors’ advice was to exercise my jaw muscles by using tongue depressors. However, due to the lack of saliva and the dryness of my mouth made tongue depressors extremely uncomfortable to use. They stick to your lips, tongue and they slip out when you stack them together to increase your stretch. It became a challenge to exercise consistently and eventually I got discouraged and stopped exercising.
