Sunderland's little mascot Bradley Lowery lost his life

Bradley Lowery has united the football fans and players across the world. Bradley Lowery, the Sunderland football club charm whose encounter with rare cancer aided raise more than £1m, has now ended the fight. The six-year-old Sunderland fan, who has been an inspiration for all, heartened hundreds of thousands of hearts when he struck up a close relationship with the team’s striker Jermain Defoe after he had been diagnosed with Neuroblastoma.

On Friday, his death news was announced by his family in a statement on Facebook,"My brave boy has gone 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 elsewhere. There are no words to describe how heartbroken we are. Thank you, everyone, for all your support and kind words. Sleep tight baby boy and fly high with them angels."

He was under treatment but unfortunately, Bradley's condition weakened beyond the point of a cure but not before he gathered the support of the country – above all due to his bond with then Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe. 

Bradley was titled ‘Child of Courage’ at the Pride of North East Awards just days earlier a party was held to celebrate his sixth birthday, which was attended by Defoe and 250 other well-wishers. Being a mascot for Sunderland and a brave gun, Bradley is an inspiration for millions. Fans sang his name at games and held posters saying: “Cancer has no colors.”
