A number of visiting Premier League teams have shown their respect for Bradley’s under the banner of ‘Cancer has no colours’

Five-year-old Bradley Lowery has united football fans everywhere during his battle with cancer. Lowery, who says his best friend is former Hammer Jermaine Defoe – BradleyThe young Sunderland fan’s life changed when he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma on January 7th 2013 after a tumour was found above his left kidney.

Bradley beat the disease once, however he tragically relapsed after a period in remission last year. Bradley’s family have been desperately raising funds in a bid to get the five-year-old to the USA for life-saving treatment. They achieved their goal, reaching £700,000 to get Bradley to America, the football community helped them reach the amount, Everton football club donated £200,000 to help Bradley.

 Unfortunately doctors told Bradley’s family that the cancer had become terminal. Bradley has been receiving treatment – which is not yet available on the NHS, at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary, rather than having to take the long journey to America. Bradley is the first patient in the UK to receive the £35,000 treatment that combines chemo with an antibody to zap the cancer cells.

  1. Nice touch. Restores my faith in the proper West Ham fans, puts the whinging poisonous keyboard warriors to shame. One Bradley Lowrey indeed. I’m delighted we are doing something.
