Heartbreak as even more devastating news for Bradley Lowery family.
Sadly his cancer is now spreading as such a fast rate he is receiving palliative care at home.
A number of new tumours have been found including one on his lungs.
In an update on Facebook the Bradley Lowery Fight Appeal posted “Sorry for the no updates everyone Iv been trying to process information myself. Bradley had a scan on Monday and it showed what we feared. Bradley’s cancer is spreading at a very fast rate and he has now got lots of new tumours including in his lungs.
“The lump that was causing pain was originally thought to be a abscess has got bigger and they now believe it’s a tumour. We are heart broken this is happening so fast.
“Bradley is now receiving palliative care at home. He is going for radio therapy at the end of this week and next week but this is to control the pain in the hope we get him comfortable.
“Lots of people keep asking how long has he got to live? I can’t answer this as we don’t know all we know is it’s not long.
“We have had messages asking where is the money going that has been raised. Please rest assured that all funds that have been raised for Bradley’s treatment is going to be put into the Bradley lowery foundation charity.
“We are in the process of setting this up and further details of what our aims and objectives are will be published in due course. What I will say though because of all the support we have received from you lovely people we are now in a position to be able to help a lot of children.”
We send our warmest wishes to the family at this difficult time.
