Rally for better bones with Kids Play For Good ambassador Fisher Ortiz! Raise funds for research and treatment of Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI).
Also called “brittle bone disease,” OI is a rare disorder that causes thin bones and painful fractures. Lots of them. Fisher, now 6, was born with broken legs, arms, and ribs and has endured more than 30 bone breaks since then. But he was also born with an Unbreakable Spirit! He loves tennis, baseball, singing, telling jokes, and playing with friends.

Fisher's mom talks about bringing him home for the 1st time
Potomac, MD’s Fisher Ortiz has excellent hand-eye coordination. He loves to whack a tennis ball or smash a baseball like any other 6 year old. The only problem is, if he swings too hard, his arm could break. He faces that risk with almost every move he makes because Fisher was born with osteogenesis imperfecta (OI). Also known as “brittle bone disease,” OI is a rare disorder that causes thin, fragile bones and leads to painful fractures. Lots of them. Fisher has endured over 30 breaks so far.
