“Born Different” is out with a new feature, this time focusing on a YouTube Gamer.
A YOUTUBER has broken over 200 bones due to a rare genetic condition that makes his bones as fragile as glass. Bladen Pietro, otherwise known as Bastrin, was born with Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), a genetic disorder that prevents the body from building strong bones, also called brittle bone disease. Despite his condition, the 21-year-old YouTuber, from North Carolina, started his own YouTube channel nine years ago to inspire others and today, he has over 460K subscribers. Bladen says that even though he has broken almost every bone in his body, he won’t let his condition stop him from being active and living life to the fullest.
