About About Kids Cancer Care News Stories THE POLAR EXPRESS™


On Thursday, November 23, 2017 over 300 kids and parents dressed in their pyjamas gathered at Aspen Crossing Railway in Mossleigh, Alberta to take a ride on THE POLAR EXPRESS™. Aspen Crossing Railway hosted the ride to the North Pole at no cost to families in the Kids Cancer Care community.  

Eight-year-old cancer patient Grace Couldwell was on the ride along with her twin siblings Joshua and Emma (8) and her mom Nancy Couldwell. Grace was diagnosed with leukemia in May 2017 and will be on treatment until August, 2019. Although she still has a long battle ahead, Grace is happy to be going to school and playing hockey. She has lots of friends and family supporting her every along the way. Kids Cancer Care programs and events such as THE POLAR EXPRESS™ help make the journey more bearable.
