An Acromegaly Journey Like No Other

Every person with acromegaly has a unique story to tell, and Risa Heidt is certainly no exception. As someone who loves the outdoors and has never backed away from a challenge, Risa decided to shed some light on what many acromegaly patients go through – from the time they first notice symptoms, to the point where they finally get diagnosed, to what it’s like to live with a rare endocrine disease.

So what’s an accomplished endurance athlete and avid road cyclist to do? Jump on her bike and pedal 1,845 miles, of course. Her goal? To raise awareness of acromegaly, connect with other patients and families along the way, and make the road a little less bumpy for those who follow her.

Crinetics is proud to be a sponsor of Risa’s incredible trek from Canada to Mexico, and we invite you to check back soon for pictures and stories from Risa’s ride. Way to go, Risa!
