Look out, Spider-Man! There’s a new superhero in Edmonton, AB. Thanks to the Children’s Wish Foundation, SpiderMable — a six-year-old hero battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia — has teamed up with the wall crawler in order to locate the missing Oilers captain Andrew Ference (via CBC News).
In a broadcast this morning, Sgt. Steve Sharpe of the Edmonton Police Service called out to SpiderMable for help rescuing the hockey player. “If SpiderMable is out there, and you get this message, come down to the mayor’s office and be a part of that team and lead us towards safety and getting our captain back,” he said.
SpiderMable answered the cry for help and is on the hunt for Mysterio at West Edmonton Mall. After some training and the discovery of some clues, SpiderMable and Spider-Man will track Mysterio and Ference to Edmonton Valley Zoo, save the day and celebrate in the Otter Room.
Two years ago, SpiderMable — who goes by Mable Tooke as a civilian — was diagnosed with lymphoblastic leukemia, a cancer of the white blood cells. According to her mother, Mable relates to Spider-Man because they both have radioactive blood. The Children’s Wish Foundation set up SpiderMable’s adventure with Spider-Man because she has always wanted to fight crime just like him.
“He is her biggest hero,” said Elizabeth LoPresti with the Children’s Wish Foundation.
In addition to her Spider-adventure, SpiderMable received her very own theme song and a series of videos leading up to the big day.
