All About Tanya!

I have been a big fan of Tanya Angus for a while - I first heard of her when Ken blogged about her MSNBC appearance back in June 2009, I admired her acromegaly awareness efforts in January, and Jenny blogged about her TLC television appearance in March.  Just today, a comment came in from someone who knows her, and it looks like Tanya has her own website now!  It's still under construction, but I thought I'd share so that we can all check it out and express our support:

I'm so excited that there is now a centralized place on the internet where I can learn more about Tanya!  I've said this before, and I'll say it again... I'm so grateful for all the work that Tanya has put into spreading the word about acromegaly.  I truly believe that a REAL CURE is on the way, and it will be a result of people who are motivated by people like Tanya. 
I found a new video I haven't seen before on Tanya's website, and it's so delightful to see her smile!

Hi Polarchip,
I'm SO excited that you blogged this info. I'm Tina...a friend of Tanya's and web designer. I'm extremely happy that you liked this new video (it made me tear up)! I'm going to Vegas in about a week (for a week) and will visit Tanya and her Mom Karen. I hope to have LOTS of great new info and pix.
(((Polarchip))) thanks for bearing with me while I build her site. I'll be linking to your blog/s if that's okay.
Tina :)

What an inspiration! I'm sure it took great courage for Tanya to come out and tell her story. I applaud her for doing so. I hope that the media coverage enables her to find the support and help she needs in getting through this difficult journey.

I enjoyed the video...nothing like a new pair of blingy shoes and a smile to help brighten your day.

Thanks for posting this, Ellen!!

I am a reporter for and would like to talk to someone who has acromegaly. We are writing about Tanya Angus and are looking for heartrending stories of the challenges from others who have the condition.

Please give me a call at 212-456-4875 or e-mail me at

I look forward to hearing from you. Susan James
