Kit+leads+Cauldron+chant

A six-year-old Sporting KC fan got the chance of a lifetime. Young Kit led her beloved team in the chant, “I believe that we will win!” For her and her family, the chant has special meaning.

Kit, a Children's Mercy patient, has spent the past three years battling leukemia. She recently had her final treatment.

Kit first met Sporting KC defender Kevin Ellis at a calendar shoot in 2014. But for Ellis it was more than just a photo.

“She’s the strongest little girl I’ve ever met, to be honest she changed my life, she brought everything in my life into perspective," Ellis said.
