His close relationship with footballer Jermaine Defoe along with his cheeky smile helped captured the hearts of the nation.

Since his death in 2017, a charity set up in his name has helped more than 30 sick children.

His mum Gemma wrote a heartbreaking message on the Bradley Lowery Foundation Facebook page saying all she wanted was her “baby boy back.”

She wrote: “Two years today, my beautiful baby boy went to be an angel.

“7/7/17, 13.35, a date, a time I’ll never forget for all the wrong reasons.

“To be totally honest with you all, I really don’t know what to write. My heart hurts, my eyes are sore and all I want is my baby boy back.

“Bradley Lowery you are mammy and daddy’s own superhero.

“We love you lots and lots like chocolate drops all the way to the stars and back again.”

Bradley’s family started fundraising right after his diagnosis when he was still a toddler.

They managed to raise an incredible £1.3million in a bid to take him to the US for groundbreaking antibody treatment.

However, the six-year-old tragically passed away before he could start the treatment and now Gemma and Bradley’s dad Carl, 35, are using the cash to help others.

In fact, the cancer victim’s story has helped raise millions more and in 18 months more than 30 kids have been helped by the charity.

The foundation helps youngsters get treatment which is not covered by the NHS.

One girl with the same form of cancer as Bradley has went into remission as a result of the charity’s funding, the Sunday People reported.

The foundation is also developing a £600,000 respite vacation house in  Scarborough, North Yorks – where the Sunderland fan enjoyed one of his last holidays.

A support line aimed at helping families which have sick kids is also being planned.
