The Amazing SpiderMable “Rescues” Oilers Captain Andrew Ference (Pics)


No, that headline was not victimized by autocorrect. It’s supposed to say SpiderMable.

So who is SpiderMable? She’s Edmonton’s answer to Batkid. Her real name is Mable Tooke, she’s six years old, and for the last two years she’s been battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

The good news? Mable is nearing the end of her treatment and the prognosis is good.

The even better news? The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada decided to celebrate the end of her treatment by making her wildest dreams come true.

You see, Mable passed the time during her treatments by reading old Spider-Man comics from the 1960s, and her one wish would be to fight crime like Spidey. So the Children’s Wish Foundation got together with the Edmonton Oilers and cooked up a pretty amazing day for SpiderMable that involved rescuing Oilers captain Andrew Ference, who’d been “kidnapped” by some supervillain.

The result? Pure heart-warming adorableness. And, naturally, the whole thing played out on Twitter:

Well done, Edmonton.
