CHESTERFIELD, Mo. (AP) — The suburban St. Louis little girl who became the inspiration behind the St. Louis Blues' improbable run to the Stanley Cup championship is back in school for the first time in two years.
Laila Anderson has a rare auto-immune disease that forced her to miss two school years. Until Tuesday.
In a video posted by the Parkway School District, Laila says she hopes to inspire as many people as she can. She also jokes that as much as she loves her parents, "I need a break from their faces."
