Footy Show host Beau Ryan has rushed to the hospital bedside of a terminally ill fan after her friend posted a desperate plea to Facebook.
“URGENT REQUEST!!! Any assistance to boost my friend up? She is currently in Prince of Wales hospital and has roughly 4 hours to live as she’s fighting cancer,” Mahali Murphy wrote on the social media site.
She wants Greg Inglis or Beau Ryan to come see her. If everyone can share this or get in contact for me this would be much appreciated.”

“You are a legend Beau bought me to tears reading the story on Kia and how she wished to meet her heroes and for you to drop everything you had planned to spend with her in her last moments shows the kind of man you are inside and out its good to know people like you still exist in the world we live in today,” wrote another.
