Brave Cancer Sufferer Bradley Lowery Awarded Honorary 41st Place In Grand NationalWhen he was just 18 months old, he was contracted with cancer and fought for two-years with the disease, which he recovered. In July, the disease returned and became life threatening again.

His mother Gemma updated his supporters and donors, saying he has been accepted for a revolutionary treatment at Great Ormond Street.

She said: “Myself and my husband had a meeting with the medical staff yesterday at Great Ormond Street about the new trial Bradley has been accepted on.

“It has been made clear to everyone that the trial is on phase 1. This means it is in very early stages and cannot be deemed as a miracle cure.

“There is no evidence yet to say it will work, there is a high possibility it won’t.”
