"He has been back to hospital yesterday and his bloods looked good.

"We are having a trip to London on Monday for the consultant to check him over ready for his T Cells to be removed and modified in the lab the week after.

"We are still trying to get our head round that treatment has not worked again.

"As a parent it's heart breaking to hear, the thought of losing my baby is unbearable. We are getting to make amazing memories that will last me a lifetime but I'd swap it in a heartbeat if I could let my little boy grow up to be a healthy young man."

Bradley turns six next month and among the upcoming celebrations planned are a birthday party to be attended by big mate Jermain Defoe, Sunderland's star striker, and a trip to Disneyland.
