Ways to loose voice permanently

My character looses her voice. She becomes under the impression that she has laryngitis, and since her family is rather poor, she just asks one of her friends who recently had laryngitis how to get rid of it. The trick her friend gives her is to drink this tea with herbs [that I'm currently studying] and take a vow of silence. The thing is that it doesn't work and the character looses her voice forever.

The year is 2010, and the character is about 16. She lives in a small town and goes to a school in Ohio. She is rather promiscuous, and bicurious for her best friend, who also likes her. She enjoys singing, if it matters at all. She does drink occasionally.

I've searched for ways for someone to loose their voice on several sites, but all of them give me answers on how to loose it temporarily or pretend to loose it. It is possible for her to loose it due to attack, because the character is proud enough just to ignore it. But I do want the cause to be something other than laryngitis.

Please post if you want any more details.

[p.s. Yeah, for any gleeks, I am describing Santana.]
