A Magical Day with the Winnipeg Jets

A Magical Day with the Winnipeg Jets

As a one-year old, Kiera was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a type of cancer that starts in the bones. Although she had to undergo a procedure to amputate her leg, as well as treatment, nothing could slow down this spirited and athletic little girl. Kiera grew up skating on frozen ponds and playing hockey with her older brother, and has been a Winnipeg Jets fan for as long as she can remember. Now at age 10 and cancer-free, Kiera was recently granted her heartfelt wish to spend a day with her number-one team. In her words, she wanted a wish “you can’t buy”. Watch the wonderful Sportsnet Hometown Hockey segment to see her amazing experience, which included a personal invitation from her favourite Winnipeg Jets player, Dustin Byfuglien (aka “Big Buff)!
