NRL Player Trent Hodkinson Takes Terminally-Ill Girl Hannah Rye To Her Formal


School formals are memorable for anyone, but for Hannah Rye it
was an extra special experience.

The teenager from Kurri Kurri High School, who has terminal
cancer, was escorted to the event on Wednesday by star Newcastle Knights player Trent Hodkinson.

The pair met in 2016, when Hannah was part of the ‘Tren7’s Kick for Kids‘ initiative.
Hodkinson rode in the car with Hannah to the event, and even
cut a cake with her in front of all of the attendees.

Rye was diagnosed with the aggressive
cancer Ewing’s sarcoma in 2015, when she was just
13 years old. The rare form of cancer occurs most commonly in
people between the ages of 10 and 20, and affects the bones and
soft tissues surrounding them. After a long battle with the
cancer, and intense chemotherapy, Rye was cleared of the
disease just five months before it returned.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Kurri
Kurri High School brought the formal forward so Hannah could
attend.

While the 2017 NRL season hasn’t been Hodkinson’s best — he was
dropped from first-grade games in April — career uncertainly
pails in comparison to the impact he made on Hannah’s formal
experience.
