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.
