THIS COULD BE YOUR STORY

Like 1 in 3 women aged over 50, osteoporosis made their bones weak.1 And after the first osteoporotic fracture, the risk of another fracture increases up to 10 times.2 But osteoporosis is not just a broken bone. These women’s bones were fragile, and they didn’t know it. Watch their stores to understand the impact of osteoporotic fractures of women and their families.

May, a successful career woman, always thought she was invincible. Then a broken bone stopped her in her tracks.

Her daughter has always admired her mum’s strength. Now she has to be strong for her. She was fragile and they didn’t know it.

Her grandson now knows everything is different. Now they have to take care of grandma.
