Meet Ethan and Emma!
Ethan is just like any other 10-year-old boy – he likes playing games with friends, playing basketball, and going to school. He gets around a little easier with his wheelchair and likes to race and learn new tricks.
Emma is Ethan’s twin sister. She likes to play with dolls, go to the zoo, and swim.
Both Ethan and Emma have something called spina bifida. According to the Spina Bifida Association, spina bifida occurs when the spine of a baby fails to close during the first months of pregnancy. Spina Bifida is the most common permanently disabling birth defect in the United States. It affects everyone differently. Both Ethan and Emma have what is called a neurogenic bladder which requires them to use urinary catheters.
