Stephen is a lifelong South Sydney Rabbitohs fan – in fact, he was a ball boy for the Rabbitohs as a young boy.
When Stephen was told that he had terminal lung cancer that spread to his brain, the first item on his bucket list item was to get a South Sydney Rabbitohs tattoo!
He never thought that he could meet the team, but thanks to the generosity of TL Rentals, Stephen’s dream came true.
TL Rental’s support meant that Stephen and his friend and carer Craig could travel from Dubbo to Sydney to meet the team. He watched them train, took countless photos, had memorabilia signed, he shared a special moment with the Burgess boys, Sam, Tom and George. When Stephen told them he had the same surname, they laughed and said “That makes you part of the family brother.“
According to Stephen there’s no other NRL team in Australia with the same spirit as the Rabbitohs, and we are pretty sure that the Rabbitohs were impressed by Stephen’s spirit and jest for life too.
A massive thanks to TL Rentals for making Stephen’s dream come true and to #SouthCares for organising such a wonderful day. Your continual support has brought so much happiness to so many people.
