Not all heroes wear capes.
Most of who were watching the Late Late Toy Show last night were brought to tears with the incredible final segment that told the story of cousins Scott and Grace.
Six-year-old Grace, who was the younger of the two cousins, was undergoing bone marrow treatment for leukaemia this time last year. Eight-year-old Scott stepped up and gave her the bone marrow transplant.
When asked by Ryan Tubridy why he did such a thing, Scott replied: “I wanted to save her life.”
Wow. But we weren’t done there. Heroes like Scott deserve everything that comes their way – and being such a big rugby fan, there was no better reward than meeting his heroes.
Out came Rob Kearney, Sean O’Brien and Tadhg Furlong, who presented Scott with a signed Ireland jersey and invited him and Grace to be their special guest at next year’s Six Nations clash against France at the Aviva.
“People call us heroes on the rugby field, but you’re the real hero son.” Kearney said.
