    If Tonya reads this – You are not alone. I can relate in a very small way knowing how it feels to suffer from a medical condition which is untreatable (I have DVT’s). You have my deepest sympathy & respect. Remember you are not alone.

    Today I watched your episode on Acromegaly. I sat and cried, as I to have the same condition.The words that Tanya spoke are so true and hit home for me. Since being diagnosed and treated, and knowing there is no cure, or even an explanation for how this condition occurs. I wanted to meet Tanya, as I wanted to hug her and let her know she isn’t alone. I was shocked to read that she passed away, I cried again, I wanted to let her know that I had started a support group for Acromegaly. In Vancouver, B.C. with a Research doctor, a endocrinologist doctor, and a research nurse. To let the world know about our unknown condition, and to find a explanation of what causes this condition, and to find a cure. Seeing Tanya on your show and learning of her passing, has made my mission even stronger. RIP Tanya.
