The week that WAS!!!

First of all, we had the company of this lovely gentleman (photo right) from a UK media group, spend almost a week filming and interviewing us (Team Tanya). We really enjoyed having him here. He took great care to dig deeply into 'who' Tanya really is...because we all know she is NOT defined by her Acromegaly. A heartfelt "thank you" to Mike. We can only hope that the editing process does your artistic and caring footage justice.

ps...In-and-Out Burger is asking where you've disappeared to!

Then we got a poolside visit from the lovely KTNV, Las Vegas, News13 reporter, Katie Crowther (Click on link for Katie. Photo Left: Mike and {SORRY, WE FORGOT YOUR NAME!!!} News13 Camera Guy).

It was a bit of a media-fest having TWO companies hanging out with Team Tanya, but we welcome the attention because it's always an opportunity to spread pituitary tumor awareness with others. Remember, it can happen to A N Y O N E!

Tanya's great news of normal-for-the-first-time-in-10-years, IGF-1 growth hormone level, made big news (video, below).

ABC NEWS and another UK media group, then contacted us for permission to spread Tanya's Great News. Are you kidding? OF COURSE! Because...we welcome the attention. It's always an opportunity to spread Acromegaly and pituitary tumor awareness with others.

Then, it happened...Tanya's website, blog, guestbook and virtual candles, EXPLODED with a surge of activity, causing the website to exceed bandwidth (for the first time, ever)!

After ALL that, remember this guy (photo, right)Spencer Lubitz, our FAVORITE 'blue jeans and tennies' reporter from local KTNV News 13, showed up today (photo below) to capture a monumental event...US Army Captain, Anne Barlieb came out to celebrate Tanya's GREAT news with her, Live and in Person! Captain Anne was diagnosed with Acromegaly, too.

I'm so proud of my little girl. You've grown to be a very caring, helpful and friendly individual. May God continue to bless you with His love and keep you healthy so that you may continue to help those who are definitely in need. And to Tanya, she is definitely an inspiration just doing all these appearances to help others. She is a beautiful example of what human beings shoud be. God bless her and her family.
