I am so very grateful to Ryan and his wife Kyla for allowing me and my family to attend a Lightning game as guest of “Cally’s Crew”. The Callahan’s are truly amazing people.
I was diagnosed, September 22, 2014, at age 13, with a rare form of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, I have something called the Philadelphia Chromosome with the ALL, it just made treatment a little harder and a bit longer. In 18 months I had over 30 hospital stays, some easy stays and some not so easy stays. I have always been a Lightning fan and a huge Callahan fan so when they invited me to be a guest in “Cally’s Crew” I was so excited and honored. My doctors worked my treatment around that game so I could attend and be as healthy as I could. I loved watching Callahan and the Lightning play and win, but I mostly liked meeting Kyla, she was wonderful to all of us. Such a kind, sweet woman. When her and I were talking she said she hoped Ryan scored this game, that he was in a dry spell. She said maybe I would be the good luck he needed. Then, Callahan scored! It was awesome!!! Mrs. Callahan came over to me and gave me a hug, we were so excited for him.
Thank you Ryan, Kyla, and Cally’s Crew for everything you have done for me during my treatment. I am forever a fan!
