IT’S NOT JUST A WOMEN’S DISEASE

In 2008, Gerry was diagnosed during a screening by his doctor because he had risk factors. Since then, he has managed his osteoporosis and now has low bone mass (osteopenia) and has steered clear of fractures. Although his life hasn’t changed all that much, he volunteers on a regular basis with Osteoporosis Canada. He finds that it helps people to be able to talk to someone who also has osteoporosis.
