ST. LOUIS – She’s one of our favorite young Blues fans and she was just surprised with tickets to Game 3 of the Western Conference Final on Wednesday.
Laila Anderson was introduced to us back in November 2018 when she was looking for a bone marrow donor. In December 2018, she got the good news that there was a perfect match.
Anderson was diagnosed with a rare disease called ‘HLH.’ The disease is so rare, only 15 other children in the world have been diagnosed with it. During her time in the hospital, Kelly Chase and Alexander Steen visited her.
Fast forward to May 2019, and for the past four months she’s only been able to go home and the hospital. Her mom surprised her with the news that she’ll be able to see the Blues take on the Sharks on Wednesday in a suite at the Enterprise Center.
The Blues said last week Anderson rang the bell at the St. Louis Children’s Hospital to signal the completion of her treatment. She had a Blues-themed celebration with Louie by her side and ‘Gloria’ playing over the speakers.
