Many readers will have heard about Bradley Lowery. He died a few hours before I wrote this. I can’t think of anything worse for a parent to endure.
From the little I’ve read about him, his young approach to life is epitomised in the smile on the photo above.
I’ve had a half decent life with its various ups and downs. This kid has had barely anything before cancer has taken him away. And, of course, there are numerous other young cancer sufferers out there.
It’s a cruel disease. I’ve got my own version of it. But I’m so much luckier than those directly affected by Bradley’s illness.
RIP young man.
