Battling Bradley Lowery has begun his third round of pioneering cancer treatment which his family is praying will give him more time.
Bradley’s family posted a picture on the Bradley’s Fight Twitter account of the inspiring little fighter smiling once again despite going through treatment in hospital.
It was accompanied by the message: “Bradley’s third round of the new treatment is well in its way. We hoping and praying it does something. #bradleysfight #ourhero.”
Bradley has battled the neuroblastoma form of cancer since January 2013.
He beat it once before but tragically it returned and in December his parents Gemma and Carl were told his condition was terminal.
His family were recently dealt another cruel blow when doctors discovered Bradley had developed a new tumour.
The aim of the latest treatment is to give him as long as possible with his loved ones and to create happy memories.
Last week, Bradley returned to school for a few hours to have some fun with his friends.
The football-loving youngster recently led his favourite team Sunderland AFC on to the pitch for their game against his second favourite team Everton.
Everton were so moved by Bradley’s fight that the club gave an amazing £200,000 to his treatment fund.
A new fundraising page has been set up for Bradley’s Fight.
Funds will be used to pay for treatment against neuroblastoma and any unused funds will be used to set up Bradley’s charity in the future to help other children.
The fund currently stands at more than £39,000. Donate at https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/bradleylowerysfight
