    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Support for 12-year-old Kali Hardig who is being treated for parasitic meningitis at Arkansas Children's Hospital continues to pour in from all over the world.

    As seen in the photo above, the 449th Aviation Support Battalion is cheering for Kali all the way in Kuwait.  According to Kali's mother Traci Hardig, Kali's father is part of the 449th but is in Arkansas right now.

    The picture, posted to the Prayers for Kali Le Ann Facebook page has generated almost 2,000 likes and more than 50 comments like, "Wow! This brings tears to my eyes. So proud of our troops and so touched by their support of Kali all the way over in Kuwait," or some that simply say, "Awesome!" or "Amazing!"

    The photo depicts the members of the 449th holding up three fingers, to symbolize that they're cheering for Kali to be the third survivor of parasitic meningitis in the world.

    THV 11 has been following her fight since it began two weeks ago. Kali remains in critical condition, but doctors have said they're seeing some improvement.
