Goodbye Hannah: Teen who melted our hearts has died

Goodbye Hannah: Teen who melted our hearts has died”

A New South Wales girl whose dream came true, attending her school formal accompanied by Newcastle Knights player Trent Hodkinson, is being remembered as a attractive, vivacious young woman.

"I will hold you in my heart until I can hold you in heaven", she wrote.

"Every minute of being your mum was a privilege".

Friends and family of Hannah Rye were last night mourning the 15-year-old cancer patient who captured the nation when she attended her school formal at with Newcastle Knight's star Trent Hodkinson. Hodkinson rode in the vehicle with Hannah to the event, and even cut a cake with her in front of all of the attendees.

Hannah met Hodkinson a year ago, when she was part of the "Tren7's Kick for Kids" initiative.

At the time, hero Trent Hodkinson said Hannah was "the star of the show". "She certainly brought a smile to my face".

"She may look perfectly happy in this photo but this poor little girl has Ewing sarcoma terminal cancer", he wrote.

'She's so courageous. She's such a strong girl, you wouldn't know she was going through this, ' he told media.

Ewing's cancer is a rare and aggressive form of cancer which affects the bones and soft tissue, often affecting children and teenagers.

Mum Rachael was full of praise for the Newcastle Knights player, describing Hodkinson as Hannah's "knight in shining armour".

"It was absolutely a magical moment when Trent turned up with a big bunch of flowers at our house".

"Every day we have with her is awesome".

'No girl could have asked for a better date.

School principal Tracey Breese said last month the event was specifically arranged due to the seriousness of Hannah's illness, given "she will not be here" for the traditional end-of-year formal. A flawless night, ' she told the Daily Telegraph.

After returning home, Hannah was referred by a physiotherapist to John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle where she was diagnosed.

Hodkinson held her hand as she carefully walked from the vehicle to the event - having taken strong pain killers just so she could attend - and they cut a cake and posed for photos.

Her sister, Annaliese, posted a tribute to Hannah on Facebook on Monday night.

Ms Breese said Hannah's friends went to great lengths to make her final months as happy as possible.
