Bradley Lowery has grown his angel wings, our little hero will never stop smiling

Published

on

It is with a heavy heart and a tear in our eye that we report with sadness the passing of our little Hero Bradley Lowery. He has grown his angel wings, his pain and suffering has ended. 

Bradley Lowery, the six-year-old boy who fought cancer twice. He has not only captured the hearts of this community but everyone within the UK and across the world who has followed the news and updates.


Bradley was first diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare cancer which primarily affects babies and young children when he was just 18 months old.

Throughout Bradley constantly smiled and beamed happiness while fighting the cancer which attacks the adrenal glands which control the kidneys.

After a two year fight bradley went into remission and in July 2016 his family got the devastating news that the cancer has come back. 

His parents then launched a Facebook page to help raise as much money as they could to fund treatment abroad just as they raised the total funds needed they received another devastating blow that that cancer had progressed to the point where it is terminal.


The tragic news was announced on Facebook “My brave boy has went with the angels today 07/07/17 at 13:35, in mammy and daddies arms surrounded by his family

“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”
Brave Bradley captured the hearts of the nation with his fight against neuroblastoma and made friends with Jermain Defoe who played for Sunderland at the time, they went on to become best mates. 
Bradley’s  legacy will go on in the hearts of millions he will never be forgotten. 

On Thursday his mum Gemma said that her son was no longer responsive writing “Bradley has had a settled day, he is no longer responsive but we know he is listening to everything we say” 

“He is fighting so hard it’s heartbreaking for us to watch. “When the time comes there will be”


Jermain Defoe broke down in tears as he talked about their ‘special relationship’ at his unveiling as a Bournemouth player. Saying “It has been hard, because I’ve just kept this in for so long.

“I’ve been trying to be strong for my family and his family. “I don’t really know how to put it in words how I really feel, because it has been a special time having that relationship with Brad.”

Jermain says he and his family will continue to support Bradley’s family moving forward.

“From that first moment I met him, I just couldn’t believe that he was actually the young kid that was ill. “He ran over to me, and there was an instant connection.

“I knew he was going to be mascot, but I hadn’t seen a picture of him, so I didn’t really know him. “He just ran over to me, so I thought ‘OK, this must be little Brad’.

“He had great energy in the changing room and a great character.”

Our thoughts are with Bradley Lowery and his family.

We must all now allow the family the time and space they need.

Published

on

Police say they are not linking the incidents together despite a vile video being uploaded to Facebook just days before.

Sick thugs covered the homeless man in red paint as he sat outside a supermarket, the attack was uploaded to facebook along with the the words : ‘This is how we deal with the beggars on the street. He is not even a beggar we spray them to death”.

Days later he was found dead, Police say these circumstances are non-suspicious.

The shocking video was shared on Facebook of Micheal Cash outside of Tesco Express in Normanby.

Despite Cash being found dead days later police refuse to link the death to this incident after his body was found in Eston Cemetery in Middlesbrough on Wednesday afternoon.

Crime Scene Investigators could be seen in the bushes within the cemetery and quickly put a cordon in place.

It has been speculated that Cash killed himself following the incident, but until circumstances are known we will not be able to speculate.

Police have confirmed the death is not suspicious there it is our assumption the circumstances around the death are no longer being investigated.

Police have not formally identified the body but a member of Mr Cash’s family confirmed they were visited by detectives on Wednesday.

Police have asked people not to speculate on social media regarding the incident.

Cleveland Police have released a statement saying “The death of a man whose body was found in Eston Cemetery on Wednesday 12th September is not being treated as suspicious.

“The man who is believed to be aged in his 30s has not yet been formally identified.

“A post-mortem examination has been held and although the death is not being treated as suspicious police believe this man was the victim of a previous incident of assault which resulted in the man being sprayed with red paint.

“The incident occurred near to Tesco Express on the High Street in Normanby and was reported to police on Sunday 9th September.”

Detective Inspector Matt Hollingsworth said: “Police are aware of the speculation on social media regarding the cause of the man’s death but we are not linking the assault with his death.

“Officers are carrying out enquiries in relation to the assault outside of Tesco and would appeal for anyone with information or anyone who witnessed it to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101 quoting 166668, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org.”
