BOSTON - Laila, you're coming to Boston!

Laila's mom, Heather, delivered the news while recording the moment on her phone on Tuesday evening.

The Blues will be battling the Boston Bruins in Game 7 on Wednesday night at TD Garden. The Blues need just one win to secure their first Stanley Cup title in franchise history.

Laila is battling hemophagocytic lymphohisiocytosis (HLH), a rare, life-threatening immune disease. She underwent a bone marrow transplant in January and after months of chemotherapy, she was finally cleared to attend a Blues game for Game 3 of the Western Conference Final against the San Jose Sharks.

Now, she will be in Boston to see the Blues play the biggest game in franchise history in a winner-take-all Game 7.

"My life is unreal these days," Laila said.
