Bradley Lowery, A 5-Year-Old With Cancer, Receives 28,000 Christmas Cards After Football Unites Behind His Dream

Bradley Lowery was diagnosed with cancer in 2013, and he's now been given two months to live. His wish for Christmas was to get as many cards as possible.

The inspiring story of Bradley Lowery and his courage in the face of terminal cancer has seen football fans from around the world unite in making his dream come true. The five-year-old was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 2013, but the cancer was thought to be treated over the course of two-years of chemotherapy.

Tragically, the cancer returned this past June, and doctors have informed the Lowery's that Bradley likely has only two months to live. On Wednesday night, Bradley was seen walking hand in hand with his hero, Jermain Defoe, as a mascot for his favorite club, Sunderland.

Then, after his parents revealed that his wish was to get as many Christmas cards as possible, an Everton supporter started a Christmas card campaign to make that dream come true.

The response has been overwhelming with the Lowery’s receiving 28,000 cards and 75 packages in one day alone.
