To unite with all of you today is so important to get the message worldwide to people that it can be prevented.

I watched my mother and grandmother die of this disease and no one knew what this disease was.

But since then the research has gone from strength to strength and they've made huge strides in UK as you are here (in Australia).

To unite with all of you today is so important to get the message worldwide to people that it can be prevented.

It's not just the women, it's the men as well, sometimes I think they've gotten away with it but they are affected, and young people.

Also the message I'd love to get over is to make young people aware of how important it is in their teenage years to take exercise, to eat properly, to not diet too strongly because it will catch-up with you as you get older.

Anyway thank you very much. It was the one thing I wanted to do in Australia, I was determined I was going to get an Osteoporosis reception and thank goodness I have.
