Hannah Rye To Be Laid To Rest Today

A terminally ill Hunter girl who captured hearts around Australia when her NRL hero escorted her to her formal in July will be laid to rest on Friday.

15-year-old Hannah Rye passed away following a long battle with Ewing sarcoma cancer on August 20, a month after attending the Year 10 event with Newcastle Knights captain Trent Hodkinson.

The Kurri Kurri teenager's final wish will be fulfilled with a sea of motorbikes to take her to her final resting place after a memorial service at Ryhope Memorial park.

The Knights wore black armbands in their clash with the Canberra Raiders following her death, remembering her as an "amazing warrior."
