ST. LOUIS (KNOU)- One of the most memorable components in the St. Louis Blues' path to victory was Laila Anderson.

The 11-year-old girl with a rare, life-threatening auto-immune disease not only beat her condition but was given the opportunity of a lifetime as she was the Blues' good luck charm last season.

St. Louis Children's Hospital has partnered with the St. Louis Blues in creating a documentary about her unbelievable journey and has just released the first trailer for the film.

"The St. Louis Blues are starting a new season. So is Laila."
