A teenage Liverpool supporter from Poland completed her recovery from a terrible accident two years ago by fulfilling the dream of visiting Anfield and watching her heroes in action last weekend.
In January 2012, Ewa Kieryk was caught between the compartments of a moving train, an incident which forced doctors at a hospital in Wroclaw to amputate both of the young girl's legs.
Indeed, the Bierutów native's life was saved only by the immediate help of a passing physiotherapist student at the scene and the crucial quick response provided by the emergency services.
The support offered by Polish-based fellow Reds was instantaneous; a campaign was initiated, and later achieved, with the aim of raising around £40,000 to ensure that Ewa could receive prosthetic limbs.
Two years on, the now 18-year-old's recovery had progressed enough to allow the club to welcome her to the stadium for the much-anticipated clash with Chelsea on Sunday and a host of other memorable treats.
Ewa's unforgettable trip kicked off with a journey to Widnes and the Select Security Stadium, where she watched the Merseyside derby unfold between Liverpool Ladies and Everton Ladies.
But only after the Polish youngster was invited onto the pitch and presented with a signed shirt and ball by Ladies captain Gemma Bonner, prompting a standing ovation from the crowd in attendance.
"It was very nice and a completely new experience for me," Ewa reflected. "I've never ever had a standing ovation in my life. I just thought about not making any blunder, because of the emotions, and not to fall over!"
The centrepiece of her visit occurred on Sunday, when Ewa joined the thousands of Liverpool supporters filing into Anfield for one of the biggest games of the Barclays Premier League season.

Taking up the story, she said: "I've seen Anfield on TV, I even imagined how it would be when I finally came here - but still you have to experience it on your own.
"It's so hard to describe the feelings. I had goosebumps when the Kop started their support of the players. There are no words to describe what I felt at that time.
"It was amazing. Even when we conceded the second goal, Anfield roared like never before. It was simply beautiful.
"I'll forever remember the moment when I sung 'You'll Never Walk Alone' for the first time. I was so moved when the whole stadium and I sung our anthem."
Ewa's weekend concluded with a tour of the Reds' home ground and the museum, which featured opportunities to see the dressing room and press room, plus take a seat in Brendan Rodgers' dugout.
The brave fan enthused: "I am so happy that I came to Liverpool - the city made a great impression on me. I am very pleased that I could see the places which I have seen only on TV.
"It was an unforgettable trip. I am so thankful to the Polish Reds and Liverpool Football Club, who helped me to make my biggest dream true.
"Despite the results of the two games I saw, I will not forget this weekend. And I certainly want to come back to Anfield in the future."
