OUR MISSION is to provide an emotional and communal support network for people touched by Acromegaly. We offer a central location for medical information on issues including: surgery, medication, radiation, and post diagnosis support. Most importantly, we work to provide a network of emotional support for our Acromegaly patients, their friends and their family.
We know how difficult it is to find a doctor to "listen" and take your issues seriously. It's difficult to find doctors familiar with Acromegaly, the signs, the systems, the associated issues.
Since 2009, the Acromegaly Community has been compiling a list of trusted Endocrinologists, Neurosurgeons, Neurologists, Psychiatrists, Otolarynogologists, Pain Specialists, Family Practitioners, etc. from all around the world for you and your family to reach out. Locate your area and click on the dots to see our recommendations.
Acromegalics and their family are meeting around the world to find support, educate themselves and their loved ones, and become part of our special #acrofamily. No matter how small or large, these events touch our lives and help us accept each other, without judgments or prejudices. Please check back again for upcoming events!
Rare Disease Day takes place on the last day of February each year. The main objective of Rare Disease Day is to raise awareness amongst the general public and decision-makers about rare diseases and their impact on patients' lives.
