Blues bringing superfan Laila Anderson to Boston for Game 7

The St. Louis Blues will host Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final, with a chance to raise the Cup in front of their hometown fans. Nobody will be cheering more than 11-year-old Laila Anderson, who has endured a difficult year of medical challenges.

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.

Anderson was diagnosed with a rare disease that affects her immune system last fall and had a bone marrow transplant in January.

She has been a fan of the Blues for several years and got a standing ovation when she attended Game 3 of the Western Conference Final against the San Jose Sharks.
