I reacted with numbing sadness and disbelief when news arrived that Mike Hughes had passed away on September 22nd, 2010.
Over many years, Mike had been a friend, a supporter and a mentor. We were linked by a common interest in stuttering.
For 22 years Mike Hughes was the Executive Director of Speak Easy Canada Inc., Canada’s first, charitable organization for people who stutter, which he founded in 1984. Based in Saint John, New Brunswick, Mike was already involved in helping those who, like him, stuttered.
