Osteoporotic Fractures disable, disfigure, and kill more women each year than breast cancer, heart attack, and stroke combined. Half of all women over age 50 will suffer an Osteoporotic (Fragility) Fracture in their lifetime. Some will die. Some will be permanently deformed. Some will require nursing home care for the rest of their lives.
Millions strive for The Cure for breast cancer. Millions have joined Go Red For Women sponsored by the American Heart Association. These are wonderful efforts. But what about the millions of women harmed each year by Osteoporotic Fracture? They suffer a “Bone Attack”. When will we care enough about osteoporosis to launch a similar campaign?
Attendance was enthusiastic. We watched Our Videos (top right) while waiting for all to arrive. Discussion was spirited.
