Save Point and 2D Con have partnered up with the OI Foundation for a new gaming event, Power Up. A streaming event dedicated to raising money for research, education, and awareness for those living with osteogenesis imperfecta.
What is osteogenesis imperfecta?
Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) is a genetic bone disorder characterized by fragile bones that break easily. It is also known as “brittle bone disease.” Osteogenesis imperfecta literally means “bone that is imperfectly made from the beginning of life.” A person is born with OI, and is affected throughout his or her lifetime.
OI is a lifelong disorder, and occurs equally among males and females and across racial groups. It is estimated that approximately 25,000 to 50,000 people in the U.S. have OI.
