Aside from kicking off the merriment of the Christmas season, The Late Late Toy Show always features heartwarming segments honoring kids for their heroic deeds.
This year’s show didn’t disappoint when producers invited 8-year-old Westmeath native Scott Lowe to attend along with his cousin Grace Lowe.
Scott was the brave bone marrow donor for his cousin Grace who was suffering from leukemia last year.
“I wanted to save her life,” said a tearful Scott who also admitted he was scared before the surgery when chatting with host Ryan Tubridy.
Now, Grace is on the mend thanks to her brave cousin and her mother, who was also on the show, was happy to report that Grace was able to start back at school the month before.

After offering Scott a signed Irish Rugby jersey, the players invited Scott to attend a training session ahead of their upcoming match with France. They then announced they were going to host Scott, Grace, and their families at the match.
As if that wasn’t enough, Ryan Tubridy then announced that all of Scott and Grace’s families were going to be treated to an all-expense paid trip to Orlando, Florida.
