    While looking at a news story, this story was linked on the page, so I clicked:



    Woman with one of the world's worst cases of gigantism dies suddenly aged 34 after growing to nearly 7ft and 400lbs


    • Tanya Angus, from Las Vegas, suffered rare pituitary disorder acromegaly
    • She was just 5ft 8in and 130lbs at the age of 21 before her diagnosis
    • A message on her website reads: 'It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing on of our beloved Tanya Angus at 12.25 am January 14, 2013, due to her heart and TIA. RIP dear one'

    A woman who suffered from a rare condition which made her grow into a 6ft 11ins giant has died suddenly at the age of 34.
    Tanya Angus, from Las Vegas, spent the last 12 years trying to find a cure for her acromegaly, which meant she couldn't stop growing.
    Until the age of 21, Tanya was just 5ft 8ins tall and weighed 130lbs. She rode horses, went dancing and had a boyfriend.



    But a tumour became wrapped around her pituitary gland, causing massive amounts of growth hormone to be released into her body.
    Tanya, who became wheelchair-bound, had the most extreme form of acromegaly ever seen, growing to nearly 7ft tall, and more than 400lbs.
    Ms Angus, who had been working as a supervisor at a Walmart in Michigan, was fired from her post when her condition worsened, and was dumped by her boyfriend when his parents questioned whether she was a man.

    That's so sad.

    And it's so shitty that her boyfriend didn't stand by her just because his parents didn't find her pretty anymore.

    Good question. I think it would still be safe to throw rocks at it and kill it with fire if it was named Eric The Midget. :killit:

    That sucks, I didn't know it could just happen after you were born normal and were a normal teenager, I always thought giants has some kind of genetic disorder.

    Imagine if this just suddenly happened to Kate Upton? It would be a national tragedy. We need to fight this disease!
