Hannah Rye, the beautiful and brave teen who took Newcastle Knights NRL player Trent Hodkinson to her formal, has lost her battle with cancer.
The 15-year-old passed away over the weekend, the Daily Telegraph reported.
Last month Hannah made headlines when she was escorted to her year 10 formal at Kurri Kurri High School in NSW by Hodkinson.

She was photographed beaming with joy as she made her way down the arrivals walkway arm-in-arm with the footy player.
Hannah first met her sporting hero in 2016, when he dedicated his kicks for the ‘Tren7’s Kick for Kids’ initiative to her.
