Who is Bradley Lowery?
He is a resident of Blackhall Colliery near Hartlepool who was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma at the age of two on the 7th of Jan, 2013. Although he successfully beat cancer, it relapsed unexpectedly in July 2016.
His well-wishers are busy raising funds in order to have his good health back again.
What about Neuroblastoma?
The tumour he developed was large enough to put pressure on his major organs and arteries. It saw a spreading through his lungs, lymph nodes, bone and bone marrow.
This all happened when cancer struck him for the first time and having the relapse rate of a saddening 80 percent, it came back.
Neuroblastoma is a cancer type that mostly affects infants and young children. It develops from neuroblasts that get left behind from child’s development period while still in the womb affecting the adrenaline glands above the kidney.
