ST.LOUIS, MO. (KTVI) – Children at Cardinal Glennon Hospital watched the St. Louis Cardinals battle the San Francisco Giants in game three of the NLCS Wednesday.

Cheyenna Ames was wearing her "rally time" shirt during the game.

"He is magic," She said.

The "rally time" shirts were inspired by a squirrel that ran across home plate at Busch Stadium during a playoff game in 2011.

The Cardinals rallied during that game and went on to win the World Series.

"Everybody had their doubts, but they did not give up," Ames said.

The 15-year-old is fighting Cystic Fibrosis, but she is not giving up.

"You just have to keep fighting," she said.

The proceeds from the "rally time" shirts will be used to help kids like Ames.

Last year the hospital used the money to build a playground.

"It is great to have some place here to play," Ames said.

Ames said the "rally time" shirts inspire her to continue fighting her disease.

Shirts are a $15 donation and will be available through the World Series at all area Fifth Third Bank locations starting Wednesday, October 17. They are also available at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, Sportsprint locations, the gift shop at the medical center (located at 1465 S. Grand Blvd., St. Louis, MO. 63104), and the Cardinal Glennon Children’s Foundation offices (located just behind the medical center at 3800 South Park Avenue, St. Louis, MO. 63110).
