Battling Fragility: The Remarkable Tale of a Boy Navigating Over 100 Broken Bones from a Rare Bone Condition (VIDEO)

   

An Indian boy has broken 100 bones during his life with the locals nicknaming him the ‘glass bones’ child due to his rare condition.

Rohit, 12, from Uttar Pradesh, India, suffers from osteogenesis imperfecta, more commonly known as ‘brittle bone disease’.

His case is one of the most severe so that the slightest touch can cause one of his bones to break, which has left him unable to play with other children.

Rohit’s condition has also stunted his growth, with the 12-year-old weighing only 15 kg and standing 17 inches tall.

When he wakes up in the morning, he is unable to complete many tasks without help, leaving him dependent on his mother.

Rohit has two older siblings and Rohit is younger than both.

But despite his condition, the young child wants to become a singer when he grows up and says he won’t let his illness stand in the way.

There is no cure for osteogenesis imperfecta but those suffering from the condition can seek treatment to help protect and strengthen their bones.

New treatments are being trialed, but many are not available in the developing world.

Rohit is pictured brushing his teeth, adjusting to his circumstances despite his severe condition. Rohit is taught how to read by his older sister and is in horrible pain for most of the day
