A six-year-old Edmonton girl who has acute lymphoblastic leukemia is having the best day ever. Thanks to the Children’s Wish Foundation, her dream of being a real-life superhero saving her city from crime all began Monday morning.
The elaborate plan to grant Mable’s wish started early, as she watched a staged newscast informing her of mysterious happenings in the city, including the kidnapping of Edmonton Oilers captain Andrew Ference. And it was up to Spider-Mable to save the city from the bad guy.

The six-year-old was up to the task, even meeting with Mayor Don Iveson and police officials to discuss the best way to solve the crimes. She had to zip-line to save her favourite hero, Black Cat, and then move on to rescue Ference. After all the hard hero work, there is a party planned for Mable at the Edmonton Zoo’s Otter Room.
It’s amazing how the entire city has gotten behind this little girl. Edmonton residents cheered her along her journey and premier Rachel Notley showed her support by retweeting Edmonton Police’s message.
