Thank goodness for the Royal Osteoporosis Society. It was such a relief for my sister and me to find answers to our questions.
It’s good to know I can turn to the charity whenever I need to. Their website and publications give me a reliable way of keeping up to date with the latest developments in osteoporosis that might be of help to me or my family.
When people like Linda are diagnosed, they tell us they are desperate to understand more about osteoporosis.
Fortunately, Linda was given a Royal Osteoporosis Society leaflet before she left hospital. Soon after she got home, she visited our website and was able to access lots more information online.
Linda read everything she received from us, from cover to cover, in order to understand more about her condition. And she called our free Helpline to ask about the medication that had been prescribed for her.
Linda isn’t only worried about her own future. She is concerned that her sister, Sandra, may develop osteoporosis and that she too may get painful and disabling fractures.
And she’s keen that her two sons and four grandchildren know how to look after their bone health. She would hate for any of them to develop osteoporosis and break bones in later life.
That’s why any gift you can make today is so important.
Having the right information at your fingertips can make such a difference.
The Royal Osteoporosis Society has unique expertise that we need to share with everyone who wants to know more about osteoporosis and bone health.
And because people are still breaking bones during this crisis, we're making sure that GP surgeries and hospitals know to direct patients to the Royal Osteoporosis Society for the expert help they need, when they need it most.
If you're able to spare a gift today, you'll:
- Enable more people to improve their bone health and avoid the pain and suffering caused by broken bones
- Give people a chance to access the support they need from their own homes, which is where many of us will be spending much more time in the current crisis
