- The St. Louis Blues will have a special guest at TD Gardens on Wednesday for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Boston Bruins.
- The Blues posted a video to Twitter on Tuesday where 11-year-old superfan Laila Anderson learned the team is sending her to Boston for the big game.
- Laila, who is battling a life-threatening immune disease disorder called HLH, has been a huge part of the Blues’ historic run to the Stanley Cup Final this season. Until recently, she was confined to either her home or the hospital for months, but was cleared to attend Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.
- Anderson received a bone marrow transplant in January
- By May her condition had improved enough for her to attend the Western Conference finals.
- Her story quickly went national.
- In one of the latest developments, it was announced last week (per STLToday.com) that a special-edition Laila bobblehead had been produced.
- A portion of the proceeds will go to St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
- On Wednesday, Laila will be in the building for the most important game of the season, ready to inspire again.
- She has become the Blues good luck charm
