Help me to help others!
Harper, Jude and I plan to participate in the OI Foundation's 2018 Walk and Wheel event in Baltimore on July 12th and we need your support!
50,000 people in the United States are affected by osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), a rare genetic disease that makes bones fragile and easily broken. A person living with OI may experience a few-- or hundreds of painful fractures over a lifetime. Infants with OI are often born with multiple broken bones. (Many of you know Harper's personal story and journey of living life with OI to its fullest.) In severe cases of OI, a cough can break an adult’s rib. Each person with OI is unique, with different fracture rates, a varied range of related health issues and his or her own path through life. Yet there is one thing every person living with OI has in common… an Unbreakable Spirit®!
Please help us to provide answers to families, fund research, and maintain a network of support groups for families dealing with the daily realities of OI by making a gift and even joining us for this fun event.
You can improve lives! To support the important work of the OI Foundation, simply click on the Donate Now button at the top of this page.
If you prefer to write a check, please make it payable to the "OI Foundation" and get it to us before July 10th so that we can take it with us to Baltimore.
Please give as much as you can! Will you also spread the word and help us generate a turnout for this walk-n-wheel event that will make a difference?
We truly appreciate your time, consideration and generosity!
