6-Year-Old With Leukemia Dresses As Superhero And Saves Hockey Player
When a crisis hits, it takes a truly strong person to save the day, and 6-year-old "Spider-Mable" was just the young lady for the job.
Little Mable Tooke, who proves her strength by battling leukemia, saved the day in Edmonton, Canada on Monday when she came to the rescue of Edmonton Oilers captain Andrew Ference.
It all started when she was called into action by the Edmonton police department.
