Bradley Lowery (Sunderland supporter) Can't Post or Reply Privately

Bradley Lowery, died Friday 7th July 2017, aged 6.

The Sunderland fan was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare type of cancer, when he was 18 months old.

Bradley went on to be the club's mascot and became "best mates" with his hero, striker Jermain Defoe. He also led England out at Wembley for a World Cup qualifier against Lithuania.

Well wishers raised more than 700,000 in 2016 to pay for him to be given antibody treatment in New York, but medics then found his cancer had grown and the family were informed his illness was terminal.

Bradley became known worldwide following an appeal which saw him receive 250,000 Christmas cards.

He was named Child of Courage at the Pride of North East Awards just days before a party was held to celebrate his sixth birthday, which was attended by Defoe and 250 other well wishers.

So sad, yet it was inevitable.

Bradley is someone I have found inspirational and that goes for his parents too.

I hope they find strength and that the little fella can rest in peace.
