The Bradley Lowery Foundation was established in August 2017 after six-year-old Bradley Lowery lost his fight to Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive form of childhood cancer.

The Foundation has achieved remarkable milestones in the last seven years. The team’s accomplishments include:

Funding research

Significant contributions to funding research into rare childhood cancers, including neuroblastoma, collaborating with various research institutions and medical professionals to advance the understanding and treatment of these diseases.

Supporting families

Vital support has been provided to families affected by childhood and now adult cancers, too. The Foundation offers support to families by fundraising for treatment or equipment not available on the NHS, as well as for travel, accommodation, and other expenses associated with medical treatment. Additionally, they provide emotional support and guidance to help families navigate through challenging times.

Creating treasured memories 

The Foundation has helped create lasting memories for children with life-limiting illnesses. They have organised special experiences, such as trips to theme parks, SAFC executive box days, meetings with celebrities, and other memorable events. They are also building an amazing five-bedroom holiday home for families of extremely poorly children to make long lasting, special memories.

These moments bring joy, happiness, and precious memories to children and their families.

Raising awareness

The Bradley Lowery Foundation has been instrumental in raising awareness about childhood cancers and the challenges faced by affected families. Through their campaigns, events, and partnerships with other organisations, they have been successful in increasing public understanding and support for this important cause.

These achievements are a testament to the dedication and hard work of the Bradley Lowery Foundation. They continue to make a significant impact in the lives of children and families affected by childhood cancers, cerebral palsy and autism, leaving a lasting legacy for Bradley Lowery and his inspiring journey. 

Torgersens is proud to provide accountancy and tax services to this very special charity.
