Christine first broke a bone in her back when she was 55.
Over the last 20 years, she has broken many more – often as a result of a simple activity like getting dressed or turning over in bed.
Although Christine lives in constant pain, and is terrified that she may break another bone at any moment, she is determined to stop anyone else going down the same horrific path that she has.
She wants to shout from the rooftops about the need for more research, and a cure.
World Osteoporosis Day - Sunday 20 October
Christine's is one of many stories.
For World Osteoporosis Day, we drew attention to the enormous number of people whose lives are being affected by osteoporosis.
We can work together to raise awareness among our society, and reduce the number of people whose days are destroyed by this debilitating condition.
Let's see #TheBackOfOsteoporosis.
