Joan Rivers, comedienne

Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be a candidate for osteoporosis. I know now, I should have paid more attention to my personal risk factors; I should have taken better care of my bones. You know what? So should you. So come on, Beat the Break, take responsibility for your bones. Just talk to your doctor about osteoporosis.

Kirk Pengilly has been with the band INXS since its founding in 1977

When I found out that I had osteoporosis, I was pretty shocked. I thought it was, you know, for old ladies basically…but I got diagnosed when I was 37. Osteoporosis has affected my life in many ways. Mainly I’m a lot more aware of my health now. I’m aware of just taking it a little more easy with physical activities, I exercise regularly, I gave up smoking… in fact, I probably feel better now than I have ever felt!

Erika Ender, cantante y autora

Para mí es muy importante ser parte de esta campaña contra la osteoporosis porque tuve un familiar con ese problema. Creo que es muy importante buscar la forma de hacer ejercicios para mantenerse saludable.
Una de las formas más fáciles y que uno disfruta más es poder bailar. O no?
Mi consejo sano es que hay que comer bien y mover el esqueleto porque sino vamos a perderlo. ….Yo quiero un cuerpo sano, quiero moverme libre!...
