Cancer Didn’t Stop This 5 Year-Old Scoring An Awesome Goal. His Reward… Incredible.

Bradley Lowery may only be five years old but he is the bravest boy who also happens to be a huge soccer fan. He lives in Blackhall Colliery, England with his family. In 2013, he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a cancer occurring mostly in children under the age of five. He spent two years in chemo and was finally declared cancer free.

Unfortunately, the cancer returned this summer. His family has so far raised about £700,000 to send him for treatment in the United States as it’s not available in England. Despite the hurdles Bradley and his family face, the boy still loves his favourite professional soccer club Sunderland.

The team wanted to give the boy an experience of a lifetime and make him forget his health if only for a little while.

Bradley was made the guest of honour and mascot for the Sunderland club.

The team had a match with the Chelsea club.

"It is amazing and really brings lots of comfort to us as a family. The cards, money and presents are amazing – it is like Christmas every day," said his mom Gemma.

The Christmas card campaign was initiated by an Everton club soccer fan in Liverpool.
