“Good luck to the Panthers, I hope you win” Aniyah sang on a video that went viral last month — and made its way to the Panthers.

“It motivated us for Game 7,’’ said Carter Verhaeghe.

Anaiyah credits music therapy with significantly improving her well-being during her hospital stay.

The sound of Anaiyah’s special song filled the room, creating a memorable moment for everyone present. The hospital visit by Verhaeghe and Engleson was not just about gifts and celebrations but also about sharing love, hope, and encouragement with a young girl who has been a true champion in her own right.
