Big Val­ley child el­i­gi­ble for Make-a-Wish

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - Allie Ruck­man

A mother’s love for her daugh­ter is one of the strong­est con­nec­tions known to hu­mankind. This is all too true for Crys­tal Day Chief, who is mother to Aryianna.

Aryianna was born with Neu­rofi­bro­mato­sis (NF1). A dis­ease which causes tu­mors to form on her body. This does not stop the fun lov­ing 14-year old from do­ing things she en­joys.

Day Chief set off to make her daugh­ter’s wish come true and she con­tacted the Make-a-Wish Foun­da­tion.

Aryianna’s mother is ex­plor­ing op­tions to make a great ex­pe­ri­ence for her daugh­ter.

The Make-a-Wish Foun­da­tion re­sponded with en­thu­si­asm and is in the final steps to mak­ing the event hap­pen.

The Make-a-Wish foun­da­tion is cur­rently con­duct­ing in­ter­views with Aryianna to dis­cover what would be her dream day.

Day Chief was in­spired by Spi­der-Mable, a six-year old girl suf­fer­ing from acute lym­phoblas­tic leukemia, who’s wish was to fight crime in the streets of Ed­mon­ton with Spi­der-Man. With the help of Make-a-Wish, Mable was able to fight along side Spi­der-Man and save Ed­mon­ton Oiler Cap­tain An­drew Fer­ence from an evil vil­lain, last Septem­ber.

“See­ing how Spi­der-Mable was all done, it took a small army of peo­ple to do it, and the city of Ed­mon­ton was be­hind her. That is go­ing to hap­pen here. I have re­ceived a lot of sup­port. I haven’t set a date yet, but I will make it hap­pen for her,” says Day Chief.
