Minute's applause held for Bradley Lowery in sixth minute of Sunderland match
A minute's applause is held during the sixth minute of Sunderland's match against Hibernian, for six-year-old Sunderland fan, Bradley Lowery, who died July 7 after a long battle with childhood cancer.
Sunderland vs Bury soccer match started with the minute of silcene.
Sunderland AFC's stadium was mute, as a tribute to the young Sunderland fan - Bradley Lowerly.
Bradley Lowery was a strong, brave boy that was in constant battle with very rare form of cancer - neuroblastoma.
It is a type of cancer that most commonly afflicts babies and young children, and it afflicts around 100 children a year in the United Kingdom.
Lowery was battling this disease all his life, but he was full of life, and just loved soccer, especially Jermain Defoe and Sunderland AFC.
Bradley Lowery has managed to beat his illness, but cancer came back in 2016.
Family was in a middle of collecting money for his surgery abroad, when they heard terrible news from their doctor - the cancer became terminal.
The money they have gathered will be put into the Bradley Lowery Foundation, that will support all others that are fighting this sort of cancer.
Young Lowery was named Child of Courage at the Pride of North East Awards, in May this year.
