Cancer Has No Colours - Football Shirt Day 14th July

10th July 2017

Bradley Lowery sadly lost his fight against Neuroblastoma at the age of 6 years old on Friday 7th July. At the age of 18 months, he was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma and battled with it ever since, despite a period of remission. Specialist and progressive treatment for this kind of Cancer is not available in this country and charity pages were originally set up to send him abroad for treatment. However, undoubtedly he has done more to raise awareness about the illness in his short life through the links with football, in particular Sunderland AFC and his courage. It is his funeral on Friday and his family are encouraging people around the country to wear their football shirt to work, school etc. One of the themes through his battle has been 'cancer has no colours', highlighting both how indiscriminate cancer can be and also the fact that we are all united in supporting those who are affected by it, no matter what football club we belong to. As a school we are inviting our children to wear a 'football shirt' (if they have one, if not the favourite colours of their team) on Friday 14th. We would ask children to make a minimum donation of 50p to support the Bradley Lowery Foundation.
