Life is generally challenging to those living with disabilities. But it is much more difficult to the young ones. This is the case with Sabal Parveen, a 18-year-old Indian girl who has been living with a rare bone condition.
Doctors say Parveen is suffering from a genetic disorder called ontogenesis imperfecta, which makes her bones extremely brittle and vulnerable to accidental fractures.
The girl requires constant supervision and support, as she can barely move on her own. Any wrong move can easily fracture her fragile bones.

Parveen's bones are so fragile that even a loud sound, like that of thunder, is enough to break them. She has allegedly had over 1000 bone fractures. About 90 per cent of the bones in her body are already broken.
Though her muscles are working just fine, doctors says any quick or sudden moves can lead to more fractures. This means she has to be taken care of at all times.
However, according to the parents, Parveen tries not to let her condition bog her down. She strives to live a normal life, just like any other kid, despite her condition. At times she reportedly get frustrated for the lack of independence.
The situation is dire, but Parveen's positive perspective of life keeps her going. All she needs is a lot of love and support.
