OI is a rare disease affecting the connective tissue and bones. It is a genetic disorder that is affecting people in very different ways – from light to very severe. The most common symptoms of OI are fragility of the bones (severe people with OI can experience more than 200 fractures in a lifetime) as well as pain and fatigue. Many people with OI around the world also experience fear of breaking again and social isolation, as “normal people” are afraid to harm them unintentionally. There are about 500.000 people with OI worldwide. Based on a conservative view they have on average 190.000 fractures each year. 520 each day. 21 every hour…Research is the only way to change this! Support Foundation Care4BrittleBones to support people with OI, their families and health care providers to have a better future!
