ACROMEGALY COMMUNITY INC
August 15, 2012

This organization is vital to the health of those with Acromegaly. There are many men and women suffering today wtih Acromegaly and they may not even know it. This organization has a goal to educate the general public about this condition in hopes of preventing long term damage from excess growth hormone. Money is not everything but it sure makes life easier. Those suffering with active acromegaly that cannot afford the best treatments available is another issue that Acromegaly Community helps to address. These are just two of the ways that I know Acromegaly Community reaches out to those in the community. It is small but mighty. ( Just like the pituitary! )

ACROMEGALY COMMUNITY INC
April 4, 2012

There is nothing that can heal someone emotionally more than friendship. Acromegaly Community opened up my circle of friends and allowed me to move forward with my life after my diagnosis and treatment. Instead of feeling like I needed to be the one to search for answers on how to manage this condition I felt like I could finally stop searching and focus again on my family after I met Wayne. He took the load off of my hands. My load that was weighing me down, physically, emotionally and spiritually. He allowed me to share all of my thoughts and research, which allowed me to "let go" and focus my time on my family. In a way, Wayne ( Acromegaly Community ) saved my family which was a little rough on the edges due to my medical condition. I was on my last straw and did not understand why my husband did not want to hear about Acromegaly everyday. He was sick of it and basically did not want to hear the word in the house anymore. This made me resentful, distant, apathetic and angry. Wayne, gave me a different prespective. He said, " You are lucky to have a husband who cares for you. " Wayne could see my husband was trying to help me by helping me let go so I could focus my time on my children. This was about three or so years ago and looking back I am so thankful. This time has been priceless with my family. I am so blessed that Wayne took my " rambling throughts " and assured me he would help people with the information. He also let me work at my own pace and just basically was a mentor for me getting back into the teaching world when he was just steping out. Friendship is key in life and Acromegaly gave me Wayne as a friend and many many more that will be my friends for life. ( Michael W. Smith ~ Friends are Friends Forever If The Lords the Lord of Them.....) Thanks! I hope I can pay forward what has been given to me in the years ahead.
