Meet our QLD & NT State Rep

11401322_10207072979128761_5066250397011699794_nHi my name is Raechel; I am wife to David who has OI type 4.

We have been married for 25 years. We have 2 beautiful children, Matthew no OI who is 18 and Sarah 16 years old and has OI type 4.

David and I have been part of the OI Society since Matthew was born, 18 years. We have been to conferences in Sydney since Sarah was born.

I have been a rep for Qld for a number of years, 11 years in fact. We held the last OI conference in Brisbane, first time in Qld. It was very exciting.  I have met so many amazing families over the years and have helped connect families to other families.

My family has been involved the last 5 years in running Wishbone day in Brisbane and they have been successful in getting the message out about OI and connecting families. I have been on the board for 3 years and am very excited about this, and feel privileged to be a part of this wonderful organization. It’s all about community, connecting and awareness.

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a genetic disorder that causes a person's bones to break easily, often from little or no apparent trauma. OI is also called "brittle bone disease." OI varies in severity from person to person, ranging from a mild type to a severe type that causes death before or shortly after birth.
