Hi Guy Lynn here
Just want to update where we are at the minute.
Gemma and Carl are taking some much needed time out for a couple of weeks. Its been a long hard few month for them, and im sure you will all agree, they need a bit of time to themselves.
On Wednesday, we met with our chosen trustees, we had a meeting about the Bradley Lowery Foundation, and our application was submitted to the charity commission.
The journey we have all been on has been overwhelming and we want people to know that without your help, this would have been a lot harder for us.
So I want to thank each and every one of you for being here with us all, your support makes this a lot easier for us.

When the foundation is established, we have vowed to help anyone who needs to raise funds for medical treatments or equipment that are not currently available on the NHS. We want to use, what we have learned in 4 half years of campaigning to make things easier for other families.

There will be certain criteria that needs to be met, this goes without saying, for eg, children 18 or under/and it is purely for medical purposes etc.
We will obtain a charity number that will enable us to get funding from other organisations to allow us to help families further.
We hope to have this up and running ASAP.
It has taken a lot of discussion to decide how we will do things, pro's/cons etc. But we think with what we have learned along the way with #bradleysfight campaign, will be detrimental in helping thousands of children in need if help.

I urge anyone who is need of help to contact us, we will be there to help you along the way.

If you need help/advise please feel free to drop us an email
Please state in the email

Name of child
Brief rundown of illness
What treatment you are looking at
Social media links
Funding links

You can do this via our email -
[email protected]

As you can imagine, we have already received quite a few emails, so we will get round to you and arrange a brief telephone call

Again I want to thank you all for your continued support, it really does mean the world to us x x
Hello

My name is Shane Tench (20 years old)
Myself and 6 other people amazing people have pulled together for Bradley to raise money for his foundation.

We have a dream, a dream to walk 153 miles from our hometown (crewe) to Sunderland football club over 5 days.

Why you ask?

Bradley to many was a hero, a fighter, a survivor. He brought so many people together and we want to walk 153 miles for him.

I will introduce my team shorty but first I will introduce myself.

12 months ago I wanted to change my life. I wasn't happy with the way I was living and it was time to change.

12 months later I have lost a total of 10 stone.
In April 2017 I walked 30 miles for St Lukes hospice.

In May 2016 I walked 40 miles to Manchester for the Manchester attack victims.

It's now time to walk further and it's time to smile with Bradley.

We will be setting of from Crewe on 18th September.
Our first stop on the 18th September will be in Knutsford
Our second stop on 19th September will be in Accrington.
Our third stop on 20th September will be in Kettlewell
Our 4th stop on 21st September will be in Darlington
Our 5th stop on 22nd September will be in Seaham
Our 6th and final stop on 23rd September will be at The Stadium of light on Saturday.

Thank you so much for everyone that come yesterday and helped give brad an amazing send off. It was very overwhelming but I was very proud of how brave my amazing family and friends were.

I would also like to say a huge thank you to all the staff from the RVI for always doing everything in their power to get my boy better. NHS can sometimes get bad press but In my experience they have been amazing and couldn't of done any more.

I'm going to take a few weeks off to grieve now but once Iv did that the Bradley Lowery foundation will be well on its way to supporting other children.
This is one of the little girls the Bradley lowery foundation is going to help ❤️

It has been suggested that if people can't attend Bradley's funeral on Friday that they have a dress down day at work and school and pay £1 towards the Bradley Lowery Foundation. If you haven't got a football top you could wear the colours of your favourite team.

Thank you for all the kind messages of support it means a lot to the family and it gives them great comfort knowing Bradley was loved by so many people. #cancerhasnocolours #justonepound #makingadifference
Bradley's funeral will be held on Friday 14th of July, starting 11:15 at:
St. Josephs R.c Church
Coast road
BLackhall colliery
TS27 4HW

This is open to everyone who would like to come and celebrate Bradley's life and pay their respects to show him how much he was loved.
Not everyone will fit in the church but they are having speakers for people to listen to the service outside and people can line the streets if they wish to do so.

They will then be having invite only private ceremony at a crematorium.

The family have requested for no media to be there unless they are not working and attending to pay their respects.

You can wear what ever you want for the funeral but the family and friends have chosen the theme cancer has no colours. So they are wearing football tops it doesn't matter what team or colour.

Due to Bradley's popularity they would like family flowers only and if you would like to make a donation this can be made to the Bradley lowery foundation.

Bradley has had a settled day, he is no longer responsive but we know he is listening to everything we say. He is fighting so hard it's heart breaking for us to watch.

When the time comes there will be a update on his page first before anywhere else.

Thank you for all your kind words and support ❤️❤️❤️

Hi Guys Lynn here
Update on Brad - "Bradley is still fighting to stay with us. Nobody knows where he is getting the strength from or how he is doing it. He has been very close to going with the angels but he pulls himself out of it. It is a hard time for us waiting and watching for our baby to take his last breath he started with fighting and he is ending with fighting" #nationshero #ourlittlefighter

Xxxx
Hi Guy Lynn here...........

Update on brad is....he is very weak and finding breathing difficult but he is fighting it. He insisted on having a party and he invited his cousins and girlfriend poppy yesterday. They all laid on the bed having cuddles I think it was his way of saying his good byes. Late last night his best friend jermain come to visit him and it was so heart warming seeing how Bradley reacted. He was so happy and laid for ages getting cuddles. Bradley was really relaxed with him.

Thank you again for your support, although we are getting a lot of messages and comments, we are going to get through them all eventually, as your words do really mean a lot to us all x x

We are so proud to announce the release of the official video.
We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who sent in pictures, unfortunately we did not expect the volume we got, so not every photo could be used, BUT we are going to do an extended version so that we can hopefully get them all in.
Another huge thank you to Liv'n'G who without their talent the song wouldn't be here. Blackhall colliery Primary School teachers, parents and children for helping us create the video. Also a huge thank you to Chris Ramsey for creating the video for us at such short notice.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we do

Hi Guys Lynn here.
I have a quote from Gemma for you all -
"Bradley is very weak now but is still fighting on in true Bradley style. He will only go when he decides. Xxx"

Thank you for your continued support and when the time comes it will be put on Bradley's official Facebook (here) and twitter before anywhere else. Xx

Bradley is deteriorating fast, his temperature is going very high his breathing very fast his oxygen levels low. He is sleeping most the time apart from odd times awake. We knew this was coming but we are heart broken beyond words. We have been told he could be like this for days it just depends on him and his body 💔💔💔

Bradley has not been well the last few days, he has struggled to keep any food, medicine or fluid down which has resulted in him been in a lot of pain. The nurse has been out today and she has put a pump on that gives him anti sickness and a pump on that gives him morphine to help him feel better. I'm hoping he feels a little better once that's in his system.

Thank you for your continued support ❤️

Please note due to the high volume of messages the page gets on a daily basis we will not be answering the ones that ask how Bradley is doing. I appreciate everyone's concern but I will update everyone at the same time by writing a status. I will not be answering any messages regarding alternative therapies such as cannabis oil. As a parent Iv done and tried everything I can to cure Bradley but unfortunately nothing has worked. Also I really don't like to read messages saying that you think my child is going to die within the next week, asking if he has died yet, or asking if I know when he is going to die so please think of how I feel when reading that sort of thing before sending a message.

Thank you for everyone's support I do really appreciate it. I will update on Bradley later today. Happy Tuesday guys have a lovely day.

If you haven't did already please download #smileforbradley the video for the song will be released very soon and it's a lovely tribute to lots of brave people who have fought cancer with a smile on their face ❤️❤️

This is Bradley's class singing his song, it is the cutest thing Iv ever seen. Bradley loves his friends and especially his girlfriend poppy ❤️❤️
Bradley is very tired today and hasn't been awake much, you can't see it on this photo but his skin colour is starting to change and he is looking yellow. I was hoping he was well enough to do a video to say thank you to everyone who is downloading his song but that's not going to happen today.

This song means so much to us as a family as it has so much meaning. My babies smile has brought so many people together. When I showed him the footage of his class mates singing it he was so happy.

If you down load this song all the profit is going into Bradley lowery foundation in which it will support other children fighting a daily battle.

Please down load it and support #smileforbradley we are also doing a prize draw competition. Once you have down loaded the song take a screen shot put it on this status and we will choose one lucky person to win a football shirt of their choose signed by Bradley 👌
