Aspen Moreland is 12 years old and she was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor and has undergone surgery and cancer treatment.
Following this ordeal the Make A Wish Foundation granted her a wish. Her wish was to meet Kiyoshi Yamazaki, the Chief International Instructor for the Japan Karate-do Ryobukai. This is an international Karate organization of which she is a member. Moreland is a student of Rick Senger’s and the Lake Region Budokan, school of Martial Arts Devils Lake, and trains at the Grand Forks School under Taylor Azure. She got her wish and attended a seminar on November 30 through December 3, in Anaheim California.
Aspen’s mother, Jennifer, is a nursing instructor for Lake Region State College, located in Mayville.
