DESPITE her bones breaking with the slightest touch, a 32-year-old woman has become an international wheelchair dance champion and part time model. Monique ‘Dior’ Jarrett was born with a severe form of osteogenesis imperfecta type III – more commonly referred to as ‘brittle bone disease’ – a rare genetic disorder characterised by increased bone fragility and susceptibility to bone fractures. Monique, from Manchester, UK, has lost count of how many bones she has broken in her life and each morning she wakes up, she has to conduct a ‘bone-check’ to make sure she hasn’t broken anything new whilst sleeping. Due to her positive attitude, Monique’s condition has never stopped her from living life to the full – and being active. She has become a wheelchair dance champion with a collection of medals and has modelled in photoshoots for the likes of Grazia magazine.
