NRL star’s beautiful gesture to terminally ill teen will warm your heart

If there’s one story that’s going to warm your heart today, it’ll be this one.

A teenage girl with terminal cancer has had a dream come true after she was escorted to her school formal by NRL star Trent Hodkinson.

Hannah Rye, a massive Newcastle Knights fan, was photographed beaming with joy as she made her way down the arrivals walkway with the hunky footy player on Wednesday night.


Images of the beautiful moment have since been uploaded to social media triggering heartfelt responses from hundreds of people around the country.

Hannah, who attends Kurri Kurri High in NSW, first met her sporting hero in 2016, when he dedicated his kicks for the ‘Tren7’s Kick for Kids’ initiative to her.
