Just like Batkid before her, a girl stricken with cancer is getting her wish to help a city in need Sept. 28.

With the Edmonton Oilers Captain Andrew Ference deemed missing, Edmonton police can only turn to SpiderMable, a six-year-old with a wish to be a super hero as she nears the end of her leukemia treatment.



A whole bunch of people, officials, the media and even Ference's family has come together to let #SpiderMable join up as Spider-Man's side kick and tackle the criminal underbelly that is terrorizing Edmonton.

Local news network CTV News gives more details:

Six-year-old Mable Tooke is battling crime across Edmonton Monday, under the guise of a Spider-Mable alter-ego she adopted in her two-year fight with leukemia.

As Mable nears the end of her cancer treatment, the Children's Wish Foundation is staging a day-long superhero adventure across Edmonton, with the ultimate goal of rescuing Edmonton Oilers Captain Andrew Ference, who has been kidnapped by an evil villain.

Organizers say the idea was inspired by cancer survivor Miles Scott, also known as "Batkid," who gained international attention after thousands of volunteers helped transform San Francisco into Gotham City for a day in 2013.





Of course, the hashtag #SpiderMable has blown up.













A volunteer has dressed like SpiderMable's hero Spider-Man and is leading her through an adventure in the city.



There's even a freakin' theme song.



People are so wonderful sometimes.

In November of 2013 the Make-a-Wish Foundation helped a little boy's dream come true by turning him into Batkid and calling on him to save the city of San Francisco. The charity organization recently put together a behind-the-scenes video of how the whole day played out.

That morning, there will be a breaking news announcement in San Francisco from the police chief saying there is trouble in the city, and he desperately needs BatBoy's help. Miles will then spend the day living the life of a super hero fighting bad guys and solving crime.

Worst Person Ever of the Day: 6-year-old Enzo, who was diagnosed with life-threatening Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at the tender age of three, wanted nothing more than to spend an hour or two of the few he might have left cooking with his idol, Ina Garten the Barefoot Contessa. (Bed-ridden Enzo often watches the celebrity chef's Food Network show with his mom by his side.)

But when the Make-A-Wish Foundation approached Garten to help make Enzo's dream come true, she
