Tributes have poured in for six-year-old football fan Bradley Lowery, the little boy who has captured the hearts of the nation, who has tragically lost his battle against cancer.
Bradley touched the world of football and beyond through his brave battle to overcome neuroblastoma, a rare cancer that mainly affects babies and young children.
After being diagnosed at just 18 months old, he went on to capture the hearts of the nation by bravely smiling through his gruelling fight against the disease, reports the Mirror.
A statement on his Facebook page read today: “He was our little superhero and put the biggest fight up but he was needed else where.
“There are no words to describe how heart broken we are. Thank you everyone for all your support and kind words.
“Sleep tight baby boy and fly high with them angels.”
Neuroblastoma was the cruel disease that Plymouth boy Henry Hallam battled bravely to overcome after being diagnosed in 2012. The twitter account of Hugs From Henry, the charity that he inspired, tweeted today: “Fly high Bradley, you have been so incredible #bradleylowery #neuroblastoma”
