We are extremely saddened to share with you the news that Bradley Lowery has now been given weeks to live
Bradley, six, from Blackhall Colliery, County Durham, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma when he was 18 months old. He is currently receiving palliative care at home and is continuing to be supported by Rainbow Trust.
Bradley was recently named Child of Courage at the Pride of North East Awards and he has become a well-known face across the UK after becoming Sunderland’s mascot and close friend of England striker Jermaine Defoe.
We would like to share this lovely photo of Bradley enjoying some time with Rainbow Trust volunteer Martin from the North East Family Support Team, taken in November 2016.
We have been supporting the family for over four years.
Our Family Support Worker Monica has been helping Bradley and his family and continues to support them. Bradley’s Mum Gemma kindly said Rainbow Trust has been invaluable.
“Rainbow Trust has been an invaluable service for me and Bradley. They have given us amazing support and I am very grateful for everything.”
Our thoughts are with the family at this time.
