Meet Emily Kiecher – A First for Mobility Equipment

Star of Parents Magazine’s February Cover The decision to feature a child using mobility equipment on this month's cover is a huge first. Three year-old Emily has spina bifida and in a history-making moment in publishing, is on the cover of Parents magazine’s February issue. “They asked what she wanted to listen to, and she said, ‘Lady Gaga,’ so that’s what they played. She was dancing around and pointing to anyone who wasn’t dancing!” That’s how Emily Kiecher’s mom, Liz, described their recent photo shoot at Parents magazine.
