他是一个勇敢的小男孩,他吸引了全世界足球迷的心。

Bradley Lowery’s fight against neuroblastoma, a rare childhood cancer, began in January 2013 and his positivity in battling the disease has gone on to inspire millions.

A Sunderland fan from Blackhall, County Durham, Bradley’s fight became closely tied to football thanks to the support of his local side and the relationships that were forged.

布拉德利曾多次成为桑德兰的吉祥物,令人难忘的是,在XNUMX月对阵切尔西的比赛中,迭戈·科斯塔(Diego Costa)表现出色。

Sunderland’s players also visited Bradley in hospital and a friendship with his favourite player, the club’s star striker Jermain Defoe, soon blossomed.

Defoe came to refer to Bradley as his “best mate” with an image of the youngster asleep in his arms at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle seeming to sum up their bond.

Bradley would later accompany Defoe onto the Wembley pitch in the forward’s comeback appearance for England in March.

Defoe was also there alongside Black Cats goalkeeper Vito Mannone for Bradley’s sixth birthday party last month – one that included fire-eaters, jugglers and stilt-walkers.

But the campaign was not restricted to the North East. Bradley’s fight was taken up by those all over the country – with football fans often at the heart of it.

尤其是,他得到了埃弗顿的支持,俱乐部承诺为去年支付在美国开创性治疗的费用呼吁提供200,000万英镑。

甚至国际金融机构FIFA都希望他在今年早些时候生日快乐,并且向他发送圣诞贺卡的呼吁也导致通过邮局发送了315,000张贺卡。

可悲的是,抗体治疗的开创性无法挽救布拉德利,但他给这么多人带来的欢乐,以及他短暂生命的遗产将继续存在。

布拉德利·洛里基金会(Bradley Lowery Foundation)将寻求帮助其他儿童开展竞选活动,目前已筹集了超过100,000英镑的资金。

布拉德利将继续发挥作用。
