“Hope lies in dreams, in imagination and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality.” —Jonas Salk
OI mom Gemma Geisman, with the help of a small group of parents, made it her mission to bring information and support to families with OI. Gemma was involved in publishing the first issue of the OIF Breakthrough Newsletter, creating the first brochure about OI, establishing the OI support group network, organizing the first OIF National and Regional Conferences, and so much more.
This week is the 50th anniversary of the OI Foundation’s official incorporation. The OI Foundation would not be here today without Gemma’s dream to bring information and support to families with OI. We owe a very special thank you to Gemma for her dedication to the OI community for more than fifty years. Learn more about Gemma and the OI Foundation’s 50th anniversary at www.oif.org/50years.
