Bradley Lowery diagnosed with new tumour: Sunderland leaves messages of hope for youngster

People in Sunderland have sent their well wishes to Bradley Lowery after the five-year-old cancer sufferer was diagnosed with a new tumour.

His family have now announced through social media that the latest scans showed a growth on his back.

Bradley Lowery from Blackhall, Country Durham, was first diagnosed with neuroblastoma four years ago.

His story became well known since his family started a campaign to raise funds for his treatment, with the family hoping to raise £700,000 for treatment abroad.

Bradley has been in the hearts of thousands of people sending him well-wishing messages showing their support.

Bradley is a Sunderland football fan and has been a mascot for his favourite team this season. He also had a hospital visit from his favourite player.

Bradley is fighting the cancer and has undergone various treatments to prolong his life.

His mother Gemma said that his condition is not improving. She posted on Facebook: “Bradley has had scans the last couple of days to see if treatment is working.

“Bradley’s consultant has had a look at the images and give us some information but we will have to wait for the official results.

“Unfortunately the results are not what we wanted to hear.

“Bradley’s scans show that there has been a small reduction in some parts however there is a new tumour on the bottom of his back.

“As you can imagine we are devastated and heartbroken with this news as I really wanted the new treatment to work.”

Writing on the Bradley Lowery’s Fight Against Neuroblastoma Facebook page, she added: “We are not sure where we go from here as it will depend on his bone marrow biopsy results. He is getting this done tomorrow but results won’t be back for another week.

“Why is life so cruel? Why do we have to get bad news time after time? Why does my baby not get a break?”

Bradley will continue to receive treatment at the RVI Hospital in Newcastle.

Anyone who would like to donate funds to help with Bradley’s treatment can text “BRAD02” to 70070.
