Bradley Lowery – A Complete Inspiration To Us All – From One So Young

We were all so very sad to see the passing yesterday of six year-old Bradley Lowery after his brave and courageous fight against the rare and debilitating cancer neuroblastoma disease.

His life ended yesterday a short while after he said his goodbyes to his best friend and soul mate Jermaine Defoe.

But it was all too much for Jermain who simply broke down later at his news conference.

Bradley has touched all our hearts as this young boy’s smile and thumbs up signs have lifted us all.

And this from a six year-old boy who was fighting adversity every single day of his life since he contacted the terrible disease eighteen months ago.

But we’re sure this brave little lad is in a better place now and he’ll still be able to watch Jermain play his football, even if it’s now for Bournemouth AFC and not for his favorite team Sunderland.

Bradley has shown us all that loving each other is so much better than the alternative and he has inspired us all with his humanity, tremendous spirit and bravery for one so very young.

Our sincere condolences go out to his parents, relatives and friends.

Rest in Peace Bradley – we all love you.

    It’s usual to give former Sunderland players a bit of stick when they appear at St James’ Park with their new clubs! However I feel that Jermain Defoe deserves a special welcome from the Geordies when he comes to play up here for his new club Bournemouth. Let us give him a very warm welcome in memory of “the little fella” Are we all big enough to do this? I truely hope so.

    JohnJ excellent sentiment. Some things go way beyond football rivalry. Total respect for that young man.
