ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — Young St. Louis Blues fan Laila Anderson has met her match.

The team announced this week that a bone marrow donor has been matched with the 10-year-old girl. She suffers from a rare disease called HLH and was having trouble finding a bone marrow donor.

The team didn't say who the donor was or whether the match came from a recent "Be The Match" drive during November 19th's game. However, the Blues do say the donor has agreed to help Anderson.
