Clubs from the Premier League and the EFL – including the Royals – are uniting this September for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, supporting the Bradley Lowery Foundation as they fundraise to aid further research into childhood cancer.
When our current goalkeeper Vito Mannone was previously a player with Sunderland, the story of six-year-old Black Cats supporter Bradley Lowery touched the lives of football fans everywhere. An inspiration at a tender age.
Sadly, Bradley lost his battle to High Risk Neuroblastoma in July 2017. The Foundation was set up in his memory to help children and their families who have been affected by cancer or other childhood illnesses.
Throughout September, the Bradley Lowery Foundation, with support from the football community, aims to raise awareness and money to fund further research, treatment and equipment for those with childhood cancer.
Every penny raised will help to make a difference to young people and their families who are impacted by the illness, with The Bradley Lowery Foundation matching funds up to £50,000.
