What a championship year for hockey superfan Leila Anderson! Battling a life-threatening autoimmune disease, the 11 year old became the St. Louis Blues inspiration. As the team won its very first Stanley Cups Leila was there every step of the way. They even presented her with her own Stanley Cup ring. All this after receiving a life-saving bone marrow transplant from an anonymous donor. I was just overjoyed, his name's Kenton, he's 19, he goes to KU. But anonymous no more.
Laila met Kenton family for the first time at the annual Be The Match soirée. Thank you for the second chance at life. You mean the world to me and i love you and i'm so happy that you're okay. Fast friends with some catching up to do. I don't care if we go to dinner, we go to Disney World. I don't care what we do. I just want to spend time with you. First stop, a Blues game, of course, and a standing ovation. A life saved, the biggest win of all.

He looked at me without speaking, and for the first time I could see the pride that filled him.
Of course there were lots of other interesting things at the exhibition.
