Celebrating the lives of all who lived with osteoporosis

"I have osteoporosis and would like to see more research to help future generations.

I had my first vertebrate break in my 70’s but I have just heard of a woman who is in her 30’s but has the bones of an eighty year old.

I would like to believe research will eventually help those who get the condition when they are young and face long years of suffering."

Celebrating the life of James Greally

"James was my beloved husband. He died suddenly, traumatically and without warning.

I miss him so much, half of me has gone. Words cannot describe the sense of desolation and loneliness that he has left in my heart.

To be able to do something on his behalf,no matter how small, gives me the feeling that I can still be part of his life."

Flower

Celebrating the lives of all who lived with osteoporosis

"With the help of the National Osteoporosis Society, and the medical profession and self help, I have overcome osteoporosis and now only have osteopoenia.

It took 18 years to do so but I did it and now look forward to an active healthy old age. I am now 73 and was diagnosed when I was around 50.

It is a disease you can do something about. About half my success was an active lifestyle with daily walking, weekly badminton, weight lifting and Scottish dancing and taking the medication prescribed by excellent rheumatologists."

Celebrating the life of Pamela Todd

"Forget me not for I’m still here
Though it seems I’m far away,
Forgot me not for I’m still with you
Each and every day.

I've watched you cry it hurts me so
The pain you have is real,
If only I could let you know
That's exactly how I feel.  

So forget me not you're in my heart
My love you've always got,
And until we meet again I’ll say
My love, forget me not."
