BATTLING Bradley Lowery’s family are “devastated” after being told the youngster cannot have the cancer treatment they had desperately pinned their hopes on.

London’s Great Ormond Street and Royal Marsden hospitals have said radiotherapy is not an option for the two-year-old neuroblastoma sufferer as he still has cancer left in his body and it could adversely affect his kidneys and spinal chord.

Bradley’s mum Gemma, 31, from Blackhall, said: “It’s absolutely devastating hearing that he can’t have radiotherapy.

“We’ve spent the past three weeks not knowing what the next step would be, but after visiting the Royal Victoria Infirmary, at least we know the next step.”

Medics have recommended that Bradley has immunotherapy, which uses the body’s own immune system to help fight cancer.
