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.

Police Hour released the shocking footage of Beddow who now lives in Blackpool walk into the quiet pub and steal a charity collection tin and a tray of poppies.

He has now been sentenced to 12 weeks in prison which will run alongside a nine-month sentence imposed after he was recalled on licence from a jail term where he broke into the home of a disabled pensioner in Hartlepool

A shameless thief who brazenly stole charity money by putting a Poppy Appeal tin down his trousers has been jailed.

Hartlepool man Nathan Beddow walked into a quiet pub bar and spotted the charity collection tin and tray of poppies.

Nathan Beddow stole the Poppy Appeal money on November 3rd he walked into a pub at 1pm after he was seen loitering around the bar before he stuffs the tin down the form of his pants

A member of the Royal British Legion then found the empty tun down a nearby alleyway and informed the landlord Mr Jenkinson who believes £70 was stolen having donated £40 himself.

The pubs CCTV captured the moment Beddow then came back into the bar with a friend later to buy a drink.

Nathan Beddow was then identified by thousands of Facebook users after the CCTV image was released online.

Police quickly acted and arrested Beddow who told an officer during his arrest”All this for some poppy money, all you have got is some CCTV.”

When he was arrested he was trying to goad police officers he was put into a police van and on the way to the station tried to put a cord around his neck after slipping his handcuffs.

In an attempt to say sorry and get out of going back to jail Beddow wrote a letter of apology and addressed it to the British Red Cross and not the Royal British Legion, He attempted to go back to the pub and repay the money but was kicked out.

Beddow in his defence claimed that he stole the charity tin because he had been subjected to threats from the English Defence League following his previous offence and was scared “The threats of violence by the EDL may well come back to haunt him. He is not normally someone who targets charity boxes.”
