Big Valley child eligible for Make-a-Wish
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.
