Wishbone Day – or the International Day of OI is celebrated on May 6th each year. It is an international awareness day for osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) also known as brittle bone disease.
Wishbone Day was initiated by volunteers in Australia in 2010 and has grown to be the biggest international OI-event with contributions from more than 90 countries so far.
Wishbone Day is the voice of people with OI, talking about OI and the things that matter most to them, in their own way. Wishbone Day draws awareness to the contributions of people with OI as well as the challenges of living with OI.
It’s recognized by the color yellow – which was chosen because it symbolizes optimism and a positive future.
