The Stanley Cup Super Fan

The St. Louis Blues won their first-ever Stanley Cup Wednesday night, and standing right there with them was their good luck charm.

Eleven-year-old Laila Anderson — who suffers from a rare immune disease called hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) — is a Blues superfan.

In January, she underwent chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. At the time, the Blues were ranked last in the NHL. Laila had to remain in isolation because of her treatment, but she recovered in time for Game 3 of the Western Conference final.
