NRL Star Takes Terminally Ill Girl To Her School Formal

20 Juillet 2017

Hodkinson, who is an ambassador for Give Me 5 for Kids, which raises funds for children's hospital wards across Australia, shared a selfie taken on the way to the formal on his Instagram story.

Hannah, who's a massive Knights fan, suffers from terminal Ewing sarcoma - a cancer found in the bones or soft tissue.

Six months later she had finished her treatment and was in remission, until her family received the most tragic news this May.

Kurri Kurri principal Tracey Breese said the Year 10 formal had been brought forward so Hannah could attend.

"I was lucky enough that she said yes".

"The school moved the formal forward just for her and it was a great night, she did such a great job".

"She was so fearless".

"It's the type of person she is".

Compared to the standard Brutale 800 that has a top speed of 237 kmph, the Brutale 800 RR tops out at 245 kmph. The Brutale 800 also includes a double saddle, concealed passenger handles, rear light and LED indicators.

The Knights released footage of the incredible evening via their club website on Thursday with Hodkinson arriving to the Rye's family home in a suit and bunch of flowers to greet the young teenager.

Hodkinson first got to know Hannah in 2015 through a charity linked to the John Hunter Hospital, where she was being treated.

"She had a lot of photos with all her friends and everybody wanted to get some nice photos for her and it was a great night".

"I didn't expect it to blow up the way it has", he said.

"I don't do it for recognition, I do it because I genuinely care".

Since then, her family and community have done everything to make Hannah's time as enjoyable as possible.

He said he hoped his gesture would increase awareness of Ewing Sarcoma and the impact it had on families.

It's the side of rugby league too often pushed to the back of the news reels, too often overlooked for the more salacious, juicy or scandalous pieces about drug use and the deteriorating culture in the sport, or the latest salary cap probe or investigation. It was a very big deal for her and she's now resting, ' she said.
