This O.I. Slogan Is Big and Bold

Every year, in honor of Osteogenesis Imperfecta Awareness week and Wishbone Day, I create a new design that goes onto a yellow t-shirt. The yellow is a color that represents the O.I. Community and the design comes from a slogan I came up with that represented how I was personally dealing with my O.I. (Type 1).

As I was going through my physical transformation, and even after that as I began transforming other aspects of my life, I felt that I was BREAKING BARRIERS, NOT BONES!

And so it was born!

The first shirt design was back in 2018 and I’ve created a variation on it each year since!

2022 is here and I decided to go BIG AND BOLD with it!

two yellow t-shirts that have the following on words on them; Breaking Barriers Not Bones, Osteogenesis Imperfecta (O.I.) Awareness, Acceptance, Awesomeness!


In addition to Breaking Barriers Not Bones, I added the following;

Osteogenesis Imperfecta (O.I.)
Spreading Awareness, Gaining Acceptance, and Sharing the Awesomeness!

The O.I. Community is diverse and I look forward to seeing YOU wearing your T-Shirt during O.I. Awareness Week and especially on Wishbone Day (May 6th each year)!

To get your T-Shirt in time, be sure to order right away here:

Adult and Kid’s sizes are available. And you can always pick up the past year’s designs as well!

Be sure to tag me on social media so I can repost and share your photos of you wearing the shirts!

Proceeds from the sales of the T-Shirts go to a variety of organizations that support the O.I. Community!

A quick intro to everything Tony...

Tony is the author of Disable Your Disability, a book about learning how to live the healthy life you deserve despite your physical limitations. He was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (brittle bones) and has endured 70+ fractures throughout his life. At the ripe young age of 42, he had to embrace his disability to save his life, so against all odds, pushed himself through an 8-month physical transformation that ended up being just as important mentally and emotionally.

Tony also loves music. He’s been an emcee and DJ since the mid-80’s and has DJ’d professionally since 1996 (and continues to do so!). He’s created and released independent hip hop music, and found most of his success when he and his wife, Teemaree, released 3 albums as Dynamite Jive in the early 2000’s.

In addition to all this, Tony has worked professionally in the television/film industry since 2001, and created his own company, Egg Sandwich Media, to work as a one-man-production-band; wearing the hat of Producer all the way to Video Editor.

He currently lives in Detroit, MI with his wife and they enjoy their empty-nester life in the desert.
