 “To thrive in life, you need three things…a wishbone, a backbone & a funny bone”

--Reba McEntire

Please help support those living with bone disorders, so someday we will all be “Break Free”

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a rare bone disorder that affects approximately 50,000 people who are born with varying degrees of fragility.  From mild, to moderate where fracturing could occur when rolling over or when lifted from a crib, to severe where survival at birth is unlikely because the bones cannot support any weight or impact.

Today, we are asking for your support as we begin our opening “kick off of our annual membership campaign with our “pass the ball” challenge that we hope will someday result in a cure for OI and all other similar fragile bone disorders like osteoporosis and Paget’s disease.

As they say in football terminology, we have only made a few first downs and to “break” the goal line on our winning drive we ask that you consider joining our challenge as we pass the ball to you to help us get into the end zone and find a cure so we become “breakfree” champions!!!

Boston is famous for the “Hail Mary” pass and everyone with fragile bones wishes today’s Hail Mary pass will be caught by you and we will no longer fracture when we “fumble” and fall.

Catch the pass with these easy steps:

  • Click on the button below to make a donation or become a member of the OI Foundation.
  • Make your own video to show your support and share it with friends to spread awareness. Be sure to use #Breakfree when sharing on social media. 
  • Throw three passes of your own by tagging or inviting three friends to accept the challenge on this winning drive so we can be “breakfree” champions who can thrive in life with a wishbone, a backbone and a funny bone!
