LAS VEGAS — A Las Vegas woman who suffered a rare disorder that meant she couldn’t stop growing has died. She was 34-years-old.
Tanya Angus, 34, stood 7 feet 2 inches and weighed around 400 pounds at the time of her death. She suffered from a rare disorder called acromegaly that wouldn’t let her stop growing, according to the Associated Press.

According to the report, her condition was the result of the release of too much growth hormone caused by a non-cancerous tumor on her pituitary gland.
