FUTURE CSD STUDENT EMMY HOFFMAN AND CHS GRAD ERIC SHOEMAKER IN THE NEWS

Cheltenham's very own Emmy Hoffman was featured on the Today show for being the proud and happy recipient of a new prosthetic hand. Emmy, who will attend CSD as a kindergartner next year was born without fingers on one hand. With her new prosthetic hand, Emmy will be able to grip the handlebars on her bike and complete countless other wonderful activities. Emmy's hand was developed and fitted through 3D printing technology by Prosthetist and Orthotist Eric Shoemaker, Cheltenham High School Class of '92 graduate and family friend of the Hoffmans. According to Eric, "this hand is very simple, when Emmy flexes her wrist, the cables tighten and flex the fingers so the hand closes, and she will be better able to grasp objects." Emmy's mom, Jocelyn Hoffman, an elementary school teacher, recently published "Emmy's Amazing Hand," in part to explain Emmy's situation to her two older brothers and to the children at Emmy's school. The book educates and assures, using illustrated images of Emmy doing the same things all kids do.


**Note, that the Today Show inaccurately printed Emmy's last name in their write up.
