Brendan is 12 years old and has OI. Mr Kennedy is his 5th class teacher at St Patricks Primary School in Tuam, Co. Galway, Ireland. Together, Brendan and Mr Kennedy have been helping students, teachers and parents to learn about what OI is and what living with OI means to Brendan.
Brendan has been very busy sharing his story with all the classes in his school. This has led to great discussions, particularly among the younger pupils, as to what OI is and what it is like for Brendan to live with OI. Brendan and Mr Kennedy are excited to share this story with others through the school website. They hope their sharing will inspire others to learn more about OI. Read Brendan's story.
