"Bradley is still fighting to stay with us," she said.

"Nobody knows where he is getting the strength from or how he is doing it. He has been very close to going with the angels but he pulls himself out of it.

"It is a hard time for us waiting and watching for our baby to take his last breath. He started with fighting and he is ending with fighting.
