Why is this important?

40 to 50 thousand people in the US will be diagnosed with osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bone disease).

This genetic disorder limits children's physical activity and won't allow them to do what they won't do. This causes a lot of stress to the parents constantly making sure their child is safe. On top of that, think of the cost of medical bills for parents who have kids with this tragic disease.
