A woman’s lifetime risk of dying from a hip fracture is similar to her risk of dying from breast cancer1

Up to 24% of patients over 50 die from complications from a hip fracture in the first year following the fracture2

Approximately 1 in 2 women over age 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their remaining lifetime.3
