Laila is coming to Game 3

Young Blues fan battling HLH will be at Game 3 on Wednesday after completing her treatments last week

For the past four months, Blues fan Laila Anderson has only been able to go two places: her home and the hospital. On Wednesday she'll get to add another location to the list - Enterprise Center for Game 3 of the Western Conference Final.

We first introduced you to Laila back in November. Throughout the long and arduous process of diagnosis and treatment for a rare disease call HLH, she never stopped smiling and she never stopped cheering on her Blues. The team and the fans rallied together to help spread the word about bone marrow registration and a match was found in December.

Laila's mom, Heather, surprised her yesterday with the news that she would get to see the Blues faceoff against the Sharks in-person on Wednesday from a suite. Last week, Laila rang the bell at St. Louis Children's Hospital to signal the completion of her treatment. The celebration was, of course, Blues-themed, with Louie by her side and Gloria playing over the speakers.

Tweet from @StLouisBlues: For her bell ringing, Laila wore a shirt with #stlblues players' numbers on the back, because "they had her back the entire time." 💙💙💙
